no_visible_means This fine view of the Hobart waterfront is enjoyed by some very fortunate scientific types on the upper floor of the @universityoftasmania #IMAS building on Castray Esplanade, near Salamanca Place. I'm sure they find it inspiring and relaxing and hope it helps inspire their work. I was lucky enough to be granted access along with a group of @instatassie grammers last weekend as part of #instameet23 for #UTASopenday. 5mon

no_visible_means So @universityoftasmania had its open day today. Seems there are some exciting new fields of academic inquiry since I last spent any time at a tertiary institution. This scene was at the School of Land-based Dirigible Engineering. They are doing important work; you can see a young undergraduate testing for optimum conditions for advanced human-dirigible interaction (which, senior professorial fellows explained to me as we discussed the project in detail, is also sometimes referred to as 'bounciness'). It is wonderful to know that the future is in such good hands;) #instameet23 #UTASopenday #justbeingsilly 5mon
  •   lifecatchme Hehe...silly would have been if you'd bounced! ...did you? 5mon
  •   diblackwood More fun than a camel ride!!! 5mon
  •   no_visible_means Regrettably no, @lifecatchme, as testing the dirigible to certain destruction by carrying loads it is simply not built to endure is not part of their current research program:) 5mon
  •   no_visible_means Well, @diblackwood, the Institute for Sustainable Arid Region Quadrupedal Transportation also had a fine display. Should be able to post a pic around the middle of the week. 5mon
  •   no_visible_means @diblackwood You will also note the inflatable palm trees, the result of years of interdisciplinary collaboration between these two centres of excellence. 5mon
  •   diblackwood Far to many BIG words for me!!! 5mon
