do you believe in the telectroscope?

I do... For anyone in London or New York between 22nd May and 15th June this looks like a must see. "Hardly anyone knows that a secret transatlantic tunnel runs deep beneath the Atlantic. In May 2008, more than a century after it was begun, the tunnel will finally be completed. Immediately afterwards, an extraordinary optical device called a Telectroscope will be installed at both ends, which will miraculously allow people to see right through the Earth from London to New York and vice versa…". I discovered it yesterday when I stumbled upon Paul St George's amazing work whilst researching chronophotography. For more information on this incredible project have a look at this Times article and Tim Wright's blog which has been following its progress...
