Some of the oldest film. It is also 68mm. You know our current films can be 70mm. Most back then were 35mm.

Has footage of Niagara, and since I was just there 2 weekends ago, maybe it is resonating more. Early industrial
innovation came out of Buffalo. Electric power generation was an engine that enabled that.

Anybody heading to the UK for a vacation any time soon? Remember that Wales is a different country....

Proof positive, if ever it was needed, can be seen here with a sign on the train station platform at Betws-y-Coed...

I bet you ALL noticed the spelling mistake on the last but one line of the Welsh text. Of course it should read '...yn glir i'r gyrrwrr...' - 'in the direction of the driver'.

Today (July 31), The Planetary Society announced mission success as LightSail 2 — the bread-loaf-sized, crowdfunded, solar-powered spacecraft orbiting Earth — officially raised its orbit with the power of sunlight alone.
"Today, we declare mission success — we're going to a higher orbital altitude without rocket fuel, just with the push of sunlight," Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye said in a press conference.

My comment was in the nature of a jest, a jape, nay, even but a merry quip, Sirrah, and not a serious determination of relative sizes. A simple 'jeux des mots', if I might be so bold as to note. :rolleyes:

FWIW, yUK population is ca.65 Million

Oregon population, is, uh, somewhat less.
