LONDON Vans Perf Leather Old Skool Zip White Clearance , Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- The radio astronomy site in Britain that helped revolutionise the understanding of the universe has been given the highest level of national heritage protection.


Six structures at the Jodrell Bank Observatory, run by the University of Manchester, have been granted listed status by Historic England.


The listing means the installation has to be cared for and protected for future generations.


The main radio telescope which dominates the countryside to the south of Manchester is already a Grade I listed structure.


To mark a landmark anniversary this week for the main telescope, its sister telescope, known as the Mark II Telescope Online Vans Old Skool Leather Zip White , has won the same accolade. Five original buildings and structures, including the telescope control rooms, have also won protected status.


The observatory at Jodrell Bank in Cheshire is one of the earliest sites for radio-telescopes in the world, dating from when radio astronomy started immediately after the Second World War.


It had a pivotal role in the development of the new science of radio astronomy, which was one of the first steps towards modern Astrophysics Vans Old Skool Pro Black Gum Shoes Sale , revolutionising the understanding of the universe.


The main dish at the site is known as the Lovell Telescope, named in honor of Sir Bernard Lovell, the Manchester academic who developed the observatory, using at first ex-military radar equipment.


The government's Department for Digital, Culture Wholesale Vans LXVI Old Skool Lite Black White , Media and Sport (DCMS) has now approved the six new listings to mark the 60th anniversary of the Lovell Telescope's "first light", the point at which it was first used to collect radio signals from the universe. In October it also celebrate 60 years since it was used to track Sputnik I at the dawn of the space age.


Professor Teresa Anderson, director of the visitor center at the observatory, said : "Jodrell Bank has welcomed millions of visitors, drawn by its landmark scientific structures. Science is a hugely important part of our cultural heritage and we are very pleased to see that recognised and protected with these new designations."


Heritage Minister John Glen said: "Jodrell Bank has been at the forefront of scientific research and is known around the world for its important role in developing our understanding of the Universe. These listings will protect and celebrate the heritage of this significant site and help inspire the next generation of scientists and astronomers."


Crispin Edwards from Historic England Clearance Vans Leather Old Skool Reissue DX Black , said: "Jodrell Bank is a remarkable place where globally important discoveries were made that transformed radio astronomy and our understanding of the Universe.


We are celebrating the history of the site and its impact on the world by increasing its recognition on the National Heritage List for England."


The Mark II telescope was designed by Lovell and structural engineer Henry Charles Husband who had both worked on the design of the Lovell telescope. Their prototype design for Mark II, using pre-stressed concrete mounts, was internationally adopted and is now synonymous with modern satellite telecommunications. Despite their age the Lovell Telescope, now the third largest in the world, and Mark II adidas stan smith australia , continue to be at the forefront of scientific discovery.

Military parade held to mark PLA 90th birthday (Part I)


VILNIUS, May 13 (Xinhua) -- Lithuanian young men experienced a moment of truth on Wednesday as the defense ministry was publishing the lists of conscripts to mandatory nine-month military service.


The lists included names of 36,825 young men of ages from 19 to 26 years. In the coming 20 days, they will receive summons to appear for the medical examination.


Juozas Olekas, minister of national defense adidas superstar black australia , says the conscripts will now have to wait for summons to be sent to them.


"The summons will inform about the place to arrive and the documents to have in order to redirect the conscript for medical expertise and assess if he is eligible to serve at the Lithuanian army," said Olekas in an interview with national radio broadcaster LRT.


The publication of the lists was a long awaited moment by the young men and their family members. The defense ministry's website where the lists were published reportedly broke down for a while due to intensive traffic.




The lists were published with the names and birth dates of those drafted so as to allow everyone to check if they're on the lists. Social and news media were full of reactions from those who found their names on the lists.


"It looked like a joke. But after a while a tragedy feeling embraced. What will happen next? What about my job, personal life, my loan?" Tomas, one of the drafted young men adidas superstar white australia , told news website


"I disapprove of reintroduction of military conscription service, but I obey and follow the Lithuanian law," said Edgaras, another conscript from Vilnius, Lithuanian capital.


According to the survey carried out by adidas superstar gold stripe australia , 51.9 percent of those polled support the mandatory military conscription, while 27.9 percent are against it.




The conscripts have been selected randomly by using computer programs and under supervision of public observers. The process was made public in order to guarantee transparency and avoid corruption cases showing that there will be no exemptions for those drafted to the military service.


Famous names can be seen in the lists of the conscripts. Among them is Ricardas Ber.
