Think Tank in Birmingham

Had a fun time at the weekend at the Think Tank science museum in Birmingham. The planetarium there often has some good (if basic) shows and there’s a great set of photos by Tim Peake that you see whilst queueing , but there were 2 temporary exhibits of particular interest. One of them is a giant moon made from NASA images-seen below next to RAG Junior Member Sam for scale. There is also a mirrorball where each mirror is an image of an eclipse that is then reflected around the room. If you haven’t been the museum is well worth a visit even if it is a bit pricey…
