Science museum musings

Occasionally there is a working-class mentality that it is wrong, rude, or non-British to blow your own trumpet. Today I am going to break this rule by referring to an article which was recently published in "The Independent".

The essence of the article is guide to the degree of Civil Engineering and the stars of this subject in the UK. Here comes the trumpet, my course, PhD and subsequent research, is one of the 4 highest rated departments (5*) in the UK, and on a very short list of academic stars in this subject, my supervisor, Prof. B. I. G. Barr, is one of them. Looking for a picture to illustrate this fact is a recent picture of me at the Science museum in the UK. Posted by Picasa

    Looks like the main undercarriage "oleo" of Concorde. A prototype or possibly pre-production model. Tyres by Dunlop. IMHO.
