Top Gear new series tonight, h8rz avoid BBC2 @ 20:00
MOTORING: Top Gear
On: BBC 2 London (2)
Date: Sunday 27th January 2013 (starting in 1 hour and 50 minutes)
Time: 20:00 to 21:00 (1 hour long)
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May return for a brand new series. In this first episode, Jeremy attempts to build a car that’s even smaller than the famous Peel P50. He then tests it out on the streets of London before putting his concept to the ultimate test of credibility in the fearsome Dragons’ Den. Meanwhile, James is testing the latest Bentley Continental GT Speed by taking it on a rally stage. Plus Richard is at the test track to unleash the sensational new Pagani Huayra hypercar before handing it over to The Stig for the lap of its lifetime. Homeland star Damian Lewis is the star in the Reasonably Priced Car.Posted 5 years ago

Orbit with Humble & Czersk
am i the only one to find that czerski rather fit?was pondering this cos me mate don’t like her
Do what? A clever bird who’s exceedingly easy on the eye? What’s not to like?
Unless he feels threatened by clever girls, of course…

Job Title: Post-doctoral researcher in shock and impact physics
Organisation: Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge
Years in current position: 4 years while I finished my PhD and 9 months since then
Qualifications: MSci in Natural Sciences (Physics) from Churchill College, Cambridge University. PhD in shock and explosives physics, University of Cambridge
I’m a physicist specialising in what materials do when they are hit at very high speeds (up to about 2000 mph). Most of my work is experimental, but I need to understand the mathematical theories behind what I’m doing so that I can design good experiments to find out what is going on.
My job is never boring because I’m always solving puzzles …. how I can build an experiment to measure a specific quantity, how I can construct a theory that might describe what is going on, and lots more besides. The best bit is definitely the variety and the fact that I don’t have to spend entire days stuck at my desk. When I get restless, I get up and go and do a practical experiment.
I’ve always liked playing with numbers in my head and I like the mathematical bits of physics. Maths is such a powerful way of describing how things are – you can really look at an equation and visualise very clearly what it means in physical terms in your head. It communicates what is happening very quickly and very elegantly. The parallels between the maths in different areas of research are fascinating as well – you can really see the similarities between things that might seem entirely different on the surface.
The other fun thing about my job is communicating with other people, sometimes to discuss a theory with them and to bounce ideas off them, and sometimes to present my results to a wider scientific audience. It’s really exciting when two people put their heads together and produce a combination of ideas – it’s like playing tennis. One person has an idea and the other bounces it back with something added to it. It’s a really nice way of solving problems.
I see the world as full of physics toys that I can play with if I know a little bit about them to start with. To do my job you need a lot of curiosity and a mind that is open to new ideas… but that’s easy because there are so many good things to ask questions about!
Yeah, I can see how some blokes might have a problem with someone like that…
