'On each sea the boat swept upward till she heeled before the droning fury of the hurricane, then fell staggering into the hollow, almost becalmed.'
In this year's festival we'll hear more of that 800-mile journey. Here are paintings by an artist today.

With Jim heading to Orkney Science Fest again, we thought we'd take a look back. In 2018, Jim brought close colleagues up to share their work.

He also showed them Orkney. What do you think the biggest Orkney highlight is?

📸 Thanks Lucija Klaric for this photo

The latest James Webb Space Telescope image shows the Cartwheel Galaxy, a large spiral galaxy that collided with a smaller galaxy around 400 million years ago. Two great rings are the result, expanding powerfully outwards like the wash from a pool when a stone is dropped in.

Still six weeks off, but I'm already excited about giving this (online) talk about Vavilov at the Orkney Science Fest
I think it will be broadcast live on Youtube and I will post a link when it becomes available.

Among this year's speakers will be Dr Rupert Sheldrake, world-renowned for the deep investigations he's made into unusual animal abilities. Here's an example of an investigation into the ability of dogs to know when their owner is coming home.

Many questions have been raised about the stones at Brodgar. Archaeological research continues to generate new findings of Orkney’s Neolithic past. Join guides to visit The Ring of Brodgar, a UNESCO Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site.
