I was dismayed to learn that the observatory at Jodrell Bank is threatened with closure.  Considering the important contributions made to scientific understanding by the team working there, this would be a great shame.

This is a very long way from the ‘space age’ days of the 1960s, when the silhouette of the observatory became an iconic image.  Does this I wonder reflect a move in this country away from hard science, or simply blunt way of making const savings?  Either way it is dismal news.
