Museum of Science and Industry! Alan made a little video which features ...
- Foucault's pendulum which swings back and fourth showing the degree of earth's rotation over a period of time
- A Melrin Engine that powered the Royal Air Force Spitfires
- Thomas Edison's Phonograph which is a early device for listening to record music
- Amazing art installation by Maarten Baas' "Sweepers Clock". A video of guys sweeping rubbish - but it's a clock which works in real time
- A real treat was seeing the mercury capsule that was part of the USA's first attempts to try and get humans into space
- Footage of a massive museum object - the German submarine U-505 (Alan was VERY excited about this)!
