Star birth in the early universe
Star birth in the early universe, artwork. This 1- billion-year-old universe is based on deep field observations by the Hubble Space Telescope. Deep field observations reveal the remotest objects in the universe. Because light has taken billions of years to reach Earth from these distances, these observations look back to the early history of the universe. Observations from 1995 and 1998 showed intense knots of bright blue-white stars, thought to be part of these primordial starburst galaxies that are too faint to be seen. The next generation of space telescopes will look further back in time to try and reveal this epoch of star formation.

Old and new methods of communication
Old and new methods of communication. At right is the former home of Samuel Morse (1791-1872), who invented the electric telegraph and the Morse code. He transmitted the first telegraph message on 24th May 1844. At upper left is the BT tower, a major UK communications hub and landmark. Opened originally in 1965 as a transmitter for high frequency radio and microwaves, it continues to be a functioning telecommunications centre today.
