As part of a wider project imagining a ‘drift economy’ powered by the flows around Lancaster, I’ve got interested in tracing the becks and streams of the area, including ones that have now all but disappeared for one reason or another. There is so much that can be said about how the transformation of these becks Read more about The becks of Lancaster[…]
On 12 July Adam Fish and I launched a meteorological balloon to the edge of space, with a payload of cameras and tracking devices. The balloon reached an altitude of 35.6 km (116,000 feet) before bursting as planned and releasing its payload, which eventually parachuted safely down into a back garden in Huddersfield, Yorkshire. For Read more about Drifting on planetary flows to the edge of space[…]
