In November 1970, a Soviet probe landed on the surface of the moon and released two ramps. A rover, named Lunokhod 1, descended to the surface to take pictures and conduct experiments. It carried with it a French-made light reflector, which could be used by scientists on Earth to compute distances and better understand lunar geology. Ten months later, Lunokhod 1 fell silent, its location on the moon unknown. Over the years, scientists occasionally beamed a laser around its last known coordinates, hoping for a return beam from the reflector. They got no response and figured the rover had fallen into a crater or parked itself beneath a cliff, blocking its reflector from Earth. But their luck changed in April 2010 when, armed with high-resolution pictures from NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, scientists zeroed in on the rover.

The first stage of the project was to get pupils to research, design and build a modulated laser out of a very cheap laser pen. Modern devices are becoming increasingly complex and people perceive them as “magical boxes” that can perform amazing tasks without having any understanding of how that device really works. Pupils are amazed they can actually make something as "complex" as a modulated laser pen and are surprised at how simple the design proves to be. Surely such a simple design won't be able to beam an audio signal across a room and play the music from a receiving light sensor and speaker. But it can...

On October 3rd of 2007 in Birmingham, Alabama, Professor Richard Dawkins and his Oxford University colleague Professor John Lennox engaged in this lively debate over what is arguably the most critical question of our time: the existence of God. The debate centered on Dawkins' views as expressed in his best-seller, The God Delusion, and their validity over and against the Christian faith.

Melanie Phillips enjoyed listening to Richard Dawkins debating with John Lennox back in 2008. She thought that Dawkins opened up with a most startling admission - that , to quote Dawkins, "A serious case could be made for a deistic God." Phillips though that his was "surely remarkable. Here was the arch-apostle of atheism, whose whole case is based on the assertion that believing in a creator of the Universe is no different from believing in fairies at the bottom of the garden, saying that a serious case can be made for the idea that the universe was brought into being by some kind of purposeful force. A creator. True, he was not saying he was now a deist; on the contrary, he still didn't believe in such a purposeful founding intelligence, and he was certainly still saying that belief in the personal God of the Bible was just like believing in fairies."

Problem: e-mail takes too long to respond to, resulting in continuous inbox overflow for those who receive a lot of it. -- Solution: treat all email responses like SMS text messages, using a set number of letters per response. Since it’s too hard to count letters, we count sentences instead. two.sentenc.es is a personal policy that all email responses regardless of recipient or subject will be two sentences or less. It’s that simple.
