Science and music

I went to the Science Museum Lates last Wednesday with my work colleague Helen. We bounced around the "Making of the Modern World" gallery on a treasure hunt and attended two guided tours of the gallery, which were all about geniuses of engineering.

These are two of my favourite objects in the gallery. Can you believe the Apollo 10 module still holds the speed record for a manned vehicle? It went almost 25,000 miles per hour (nearly 40,000 km/h) on re-entry into Earth's atmosphere.

On a different note: If you like Nine Inch Nails, Trent Reznor's new EP in collaboration with his wife Mariqueen Maandig (she provides most of the vocals) is now available for free download. Get "How To Destroy Angels"* and its collection of obligatory droning bees here.

* Dear TR: Please show a bit more originality and choose an album name that isn't the same as Coil's next time. Cheers, N
