First of all, on July 3rd, I took and past the written portion for my British driving license! I was able to then sign up for my practical test, which I will be taking the day after my birthday, in a little under three weeks' time! I'm feeling pretty confident about this, I had a really good lesson on Wednesday, where my instructor said I could have passed my test. I think this would call for a candy bar here called a Time Out. (I think this is funny, since a Time Out is what you make naughty children do back home. Doesn't mean that here)

The AMP was a zero-carbon facility, using a wind turbine, in conjunction with electrolyzers and fuel cells to generate all the power for the building. The wind turbine would generate the energy to product hydrogen that would then run the fuel cells on demand to power the building. Here are some pictures of that!

This is a video of the lego model of a plane engine, with one of the Rolls Royce engineers explaining how it works.
This is a longer video of four blue planes doing a really neat show
This is a shorter video of the same planes, part of the same show. Really cool to watch.
The day after the air show, I went to Silverstone, but those details are for the next post!
