Not been a good week for skies at all....raining outside so far this evening.
Spent some time skimming through the OU course material last night, looks pretty much like the content of some of my books on the subject but they expect you to demonstrate that you have understood the material in an academic way. More on that to come!
Anyway a small item in the news today was that the Cassini probe has photographed the only Hurricane seen so far on another planet, Saturn. I'll bet the guys at the JPL must have had the hairs on their necks standing up when they saw the images for the first time.... saturn.jpl.nasa.gov. The hurricane is at the south pole of Saturn and appears to be stationary, its width is two thirds the diameter of the Earth!
Anyway I need to do some work now...
