It was the week following the Inter-Universities Real Tennis tournament. It had been a busy two months in terms of travel, with a lot more still to come over the next two months, which meant it was a rare week to relax a little and get a bit of work done. The most notable feature… Continue reading Week 114: Jocelyn Bell and 70s Tournament
I decided to switch tracks in my project work this week. Instead of adjusting the plots I already had, I decided to try and add some new elements, notably the indirect detection bounds.

However, this wasn’t with the… Continue reading Week 84: Day of Research, and visitors from Australia

But as always, the exciting parts of my week happened… Continue reading Week 59: Oxford Real Tennis and St Alban’s Signal Box Trips
