Red Kite Hawk In Bedfordshire UK

I drove along the same road this afternoon and the Three Red Kite Hawks were hovering and swooping around, I managed to get this with the iPhone, I've had to zoom in a lot to see it:

 Red Kite Hawk In Bedfordshire UK


 but its a magnificent bird, so I think I'll head over with Camera and Tripod and see what I can get over the next few weeks.

So where is the camera charger, rem time to turn the place upside down again, after I tidied it lol

Three Beautiful Red Kite Hawks Worrying A Murder Of Crows

Crows often harass other smaller birds so it was fascinating to see three majestic Red Kite Hawks giving it back.  Seeing one Red Kite is good, but three working together was something special. #fixed1t

CERES fixed1t Videos Playlist

Given the popularity of my CERES videos and the fact I now have over 250 fixed1t videos in the fixed1t YouTube channel, I've decided to put the CERES videos in there own Playlist.

This is for two reasons:


  1. I had difficulty showing a video to a friend as there are so many
  2. I plan to do more 'Information Videos' on CERES
  3. I plan to do some videos on the NASA 'DAWN' mission.
Here is the link to all my CERES videos, please bookmark it and share it.


Thanks #fixed1t

Ceres 3-Mile High Pyramid or Volcano - Could There Be Extremophile Life On It?

Ceres 3-Mile High Pyramid or Volcano - Could There Be Life On It?

Click for fixed1t Zooming Video of Pyramid

Not human life but so-called Extremophiles.



What are they? Well The 26th June 2015 BBC Radio 4 Programme 'In Our Time' chaired by Melvyn Bragg will explain with speakers:

Monica Grady
Professor of Planetary and Space Sciences at the Open University

Ian Crawford
Professor of Planetary Science and Astrobiology at Birkbeck University of London

Nick Lane
Reader in Evolutionary Biochemistry at University College London

Link To In Our Time - Extremophiles

The discussion was about Extremophiles and group of organisms that thrive in physically or geochemically extreme conditions that are detrimental to most life on Earth.[1][2] In contrast, organisms that live in more moderate environments may be termed mesophilesor neutrophiles.  They were first identified in 1977 when the submersible 'ALVIN' was used to go down to over 2000 metres off the Galapagos Islands and found Hydro Thermal Vents of super heated water apparently teaming with life despite the extreme temperature and acidity.  




In the words of Star Trek 'Its Life Jim But Not How We Know It'.  Since then a huge class of Extremophiles have been found in diverse extreme locations and a new science has emerged.

The radio programme is excellent listening, with well structured arguments and theories all of which is evidence based.  I recommend listening to this and them casting another glimpse at my videos of Ceres, it the pyramid turns out not to by ' creature made' which it most likely will be, then it is possibly a very large inactive volcano and my well have within it the type of conditions in which Extremophiles may have been or may still be in residence.

If you knew to science and history, or suspect of it In Our Time is an excellent place to broaden your horizons.  This episode is very pertinent to the DAWN mission to Ceres, co-incidentally ;-)

Nasa Ceres Dwarf Planet Close Up Zooming On Pyramid Movie

I love the effects of Zooming in on the Ceres Pyramid accompanied by a few minutes of my Ambient Composition 'Surface Noise'. It just adds to the suspense.

Ceres Probe Results - Strange Things In The Asteroid Belt

It's interesting to see the photos from the Nasa Probe to Ceres which is a small 'Dwarf Planet' in the Asteroid Belt.  There is much controversy about the nature of the reflections in some craters:



which are shown in the data from the instruments on board the probe, most likely simple chemical reflections.  The odd thing is the 3-mile high Pyramid shaped mountain which has been seen:


and a planetoid which is otherwise quite flat.

Fact is often stranger than fiction.
