Uffington White Horse, Oxfordshire, UK Featured Print

Uffington White Horse, Oxfordshire, UK

The Uffington White Horse is a highly stylised prehistoric hill figure, 110 m long, formed from deep trenches filled with crushed white chalk. The figure has been shown to date back some 3, 000 years, to the Bronze Age, by means of optically stimulated luminescence dating carried out following archaeological investigations in 1994. These studies produced three dates ranging between 1400 and 600 BC. Iron Age coins that bear a representation comparable to the Uffington White Horse have been found, supporting the early dating of this artifact; counter suggestions that the figure was fashioned in the Anglo-Saxon period now seem untenable. Numerous other prominent prehistoric sites are located nearby, notably Wayland's Smithy long barrow. The Uffington is by far the oldest of the white horse figures in Britain, and is of an entirely different design from the others

Apollo 17 sample of lunar basalt Featured Print

Apollo 17 sample of lunar basalt

Apollo 17 sample of lunar basalt. The dark areas visible on the Moon (the lunar maria) are plains of flood basaltic lava flows. Lunar basalts differ from terrestrial ones in their high iron content and wide range of titanium concentrations. Lunar basalts range from 4.2 to 1.2 billion years old, with most being around 3 to 3.5 billion years old. The Apollo moon landings from 1969 to 1972 returned 2, 415 samples and over 380 kilograms of moon rock. Studying moon rock helps reveal the conditions present in the early solar system when the Moon and Earth were forming. This sample has a diameter of 15 millimetres and weighs 1.1 grams

The fascinating ancient iron pillar of Delhi, constructed by a King Chandra

The fascinating ancient iron pillar of Delhi, constructed by a "King Chandra", probably Chandragupta II (reigned c. 375-415 CE), which now stands in the Qutb complex at Mehrauli in Delhi, India. The pillar is remarkably un-corroded, a testament to the skill of the craftsman who cast it over 1500 years ago. Date: circa 1910s
