Other dances were performed too (at least one other) and the opening ceremony can be seen here (http://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/VIDEO-Flash-mob-dance-marks-station-facelift/story-18745358-detail/story.html) in the article published by the Derby Telegraph.
Astronomers have found another dwarf planet in the Solar System. This is a dwarf planet and it doesn’t have a real name yet. It just has a number ‘2012 VP113’ as do so many dwarf planets in the region of space occupied by Pluto. It doesn’t seem long ago that there was just Pluto beyond Neptune but new dwarf planets are being discovered regularly. There is a long list of them (46) here by Mike Brown (not updated since 2008), but here is Mike Brown’s up to date list of Probable Plutoids (as of 27/03/2014) and other people’s submissions at Wikipedia.
This poster/wall chart was produced by SPACE.COM as a quick guide to Kuiper and Oort Objects.
Knowledge of the Kuiper Belt and the Oort Cloud is sparse but it is known that some objects have very eccentric orbits. I think we can expect many more objects to be discovered in this area in coming years.
I found myself fixing shelf battens to old walls for someone. They only required two supporting battens at each end of each shelf. The job took much longer than expected. Why? The Victorian house walls on which the battens were fixed were crumbling underneath the plaster. This severely hindered the normal process of drilling holes, tapping in wall anchors and screwing in screws.
NOTE: This work required an assistant to provide another pair of hands to hold pieces of timber in place from time to time.
