    Love the Saturn fairground.

    .. & isn’t *everything* in 3D? (4 D if you count time!) ;-)

    From the Cumbrian Skies hosting blog :

    One such blog is “21st Century Waves“, where Bruce Cordell uses a statistical crystal ball to try and gain glimpses into our future. For this week’s Carnival, Bruce takes a look at “The Greatest International Space Project of All Time” And what is that project? Make a few guesses before you click on the link and actually find out.

    Okay .. in order of thought (ie. chronological) my guesses would be :

    1. The International Space Station or is that just *too* obvious?

    2. The Apollo-Soyuz peace link up thingy during the Cold War after the Moon landings -although was more just a political stunt.

    (See : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo-Soyuz_Test_Project)

    3. The Moon landings themselves because of the international tracking and co-operation, eg. getting the pictures back from via the Dish (Parkes) in Australia?

    4. The Cerro Tololo observatory collaboration built in Chile with, I think, a large number of nations participating and co-operating. (But is that a space project strictly speaking?)

    ( See : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cerro_Tololo_Inter-American_Observatory )

    5. Wasn’t there some major collaborative project that was aimed at detecting cosmic rays and neutrinos between a number of nations incl. Japan, Europe and the US that was among the detectors of Supernova 1987 a and solar neutrinos and high-energy particles? Didn’t that involve using the Earth itself as a filter and cross-checking betwen distant lands? Could that be it?

    Okay .. now to click the link & find out if I was anywhere close with any of those guesses ..

    Aha – Seti @home or GalaxyZoo! I bet that’s it … What could be more international or collaborative across the planet than them? ;-)

    Let’s see … I’ll just click here & …

    Yo! Props for an ancient SCTV reference. (From just outside where they filmed Melonville segments)
