  • Woman of the Week - Vera Rubin

    Published 22/11/16
    rubinYou've almost definitely heard of dark matter, but have you heard of the woman who proved it's existence? The first evidence of dark matter was found by the astronomer Vera Rubin in the 1970s, who observed that stars at the edge of galaxies move much faster than expected. Calculations using visible mass predicted that the stars should be moving considerably slower speeds, so something else had to be causing this increase in velocity; dark matter. The phenomenon had been predicted in the 1930s by Fritz Zwicky but it wasn't until Rubin 40 years later that it was proven.

  • History Society

    Published 22/11/16
    This term in History Society, members of the History department are taking the lunchtime session to give us a talk on an area of interest or expertise. So far we have heard about indigenous Canadian tribes from Mr Connor and how their societies functioned, interacted with foreign invaders and how they continue to live in modern-day Canada. Mrs Stanley discussed the American Civil War and how the legacy of it has sometimes distorted the conflict's root causes. This week Dr Tustin spoke of 'The Northern Ireland Troubles - The Perspective of a Biased Veteran'. He gave us an insight into what it was like for him to serve as a soldier during the Troubles and how the conflict was fought out militarily and politically.

  • Firenze!

    Published 10/11/16
    unnamedThe town of the infamous Medici family, world renowned Uffizi Art Gallery and Nazi-defying Ponte Vecchio. Although the beginning of our trip was not perfect, thanks to the well-timed Italian air-strike - our baggage was hostage in Pisa for about 7 hours. Our first day ended with the ultimate reunion of our bags along with the sainthood of Miss Cresswell; who had fought long and hard for our precious belongings! Our next three days was packed full with excursions including church crawls, intense Italian lessons, museum visits and many, many gelato breaks. An all-round favourite was the Gucci Museum which contained fabulous shoes, dresses and of course, refreshments in our main rendez-vous on the Piazza della Signoria. The Basilica di Santa-Croce amazed each and every one of us as we went from tomb to tomb gazing upon the final resting places of Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, Rossini and many more impressive names.
