In the Scales of the Universe walkway in the Rose Center for Earth and Space, the Hayden Sphere serves as a scale of reference for exploring the relative sizes of objects and our place in space. For example, if the Hayden sphere - 26.5 meters (87 feet) in diameter - were the size of the Sun, then Jupiter would be 2.7 meters (9 feet) across, while earth would would be a mere 24 centimeters (9.5 inches) in diameter!

A different take on the typical plant cell diagram. I decided to emphasize the vast quatities of organelles inside just one cell, as opposed to most diagrams that show and label 1-2 of each organelle.

YES, cells are stuffed with stuff!

Penelope Wilton & Daniel Massey in Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal”, 1978. 

"Well, he was about 14 years older than me, Dan, and I think he had difficulties coping with himself. It was not really to do with anyone else. I think he was depressed. He had at times been extremely depressed and dealing with that was quite hard. I wasn’t really sophisticated enough, I don’t think, to deal with it at that age. I was 26 and he was 40. It was tricky. He’d had a lot more life than me. It’s quite a big gap at that age - as you get older it is not such a big gap - so it was a learning process. But we had Alice, who’s very much like him in personality. He was very bright, Dan, extremely clever and had passions for things. He loved music and would tell you about that. He had a very good analytical brain and a wonderful laugh. He threw back his head and laughed and Alice has that laugh too. And she’s bright." — Penelope on her relationship with her 1st husband Daniel Massey.
