Britain is good at innovation. From electric light to mobile telephony, from medical breakthroughs and the offside rule… as well as scifi fantasy like Blade Runner
I picked up yesterday on the Diamond Synchotron – Britain’s biggest scientific infrastructure investment for 40 years. Brilliantly futuristic name and major investment by some obviously brilliant British pioneers…
This fabulous looking facility can create light that’s 10 billion times brighter than the sun. It will keep us at the forefront of research in medicine, genetics, environment and materials.
Great for Britain; great for Oxford and environs; one of those slow-burn investments that will keep cropping up creating world class impact again and again. I am sure I’m not the only one applauding some real deep science and great British visionary investment in experimentation.
