    Default [OT] : Music : Space : Stars :

    A friend of mine who founded the Kendal Calling music festival in UK is involved with the people from The Warehouse Projects and they are putting a very very special series of gigs on. This is the first.

    The venue is Jodrell Bank Observatory home to the Lovell Telescope which is world famous.
    I am super excited about this. Im a huge Flaming Lips fan. I last saw them at Glastonbury last year and they were amazing. In such an historic and awe inspiring setting, this will be a very special gig.

    Check it out. The promo video includes the original first broadcast.


    The Lovell Telescope:

    For over 50 years the giant Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank has been a familiar feature of the Cheshire landscape and an internationally renowned landmark in the world of astronomy.

    Since the summer of 1957 it has been quietly probing the depths of space, a symbol of our wish to understand the universe in which we live. Even now, it remains one of the biggest and most powerful radio telescopes in the world, spending most of its time investigating cosmic phenomena which were undreamed of when it was conceived.

    The Lovell Telescope is named after its creator, and the first Director of Jodrell Bank, Sir Bernard Lovell. Now 97, he lives just a few miles away and still regularly spends time in his office at the Observatory.

    Since it was completed in 1957, it has stared into space, its giant dish collecting radio waves from the depths of space. When it was built it was the world’s largest radio telescope. It is still the third largest steerable radio telescope and, after several major upgrades, it is more capable than ever.

    Recent achievements include our discovery of the first double pulsar. An orbiting pair of dead stars, this has provided us with the best-ever test of Einstein’s theory of gravity, General Relativity, showing that he is at least 99.95% correct!

    Oh im gonna be there... Ive known about the gig for a few months in advance so me and some friends sneakily booked in at a farm house Bed & Breakfast that is in walking distance from the Observatory.
    I think they thought we were space nerds cus my girlfriend asked if the Dish was visible from the room window. It is.

    Super excited. Photos to follow.
