There is a ceramic toy horse on this page that's in the British Museum: http://schlanghole.wordpress.com/

This is a ceramic model of a horse with harness and was probably used as a child's toy. Its ears are missing as well as part of its tail. It was once exhibited at "Equus, Three Millennia of the Horse" at 181 Piccadilly, London from April-June 2003. We sometimes forget that in ancient times there were children and those children, just as today, played with toys.

Could your horse be ceramic?

Golden Gate bridge? Sydney Harbour bridge? London bridge probably wins on being iconic, I don't think that anyone would ever mistake it for another.

It must have been a real wonder of the modern age when it was built.

I agree, stunning looking car, I love the old style California GT from Ferris Bueller fame, there is one for sale here - $4million EUR, (not that the new one is in any way ugly! see here.

I'd take either to be honest! :)

Pretty sure that it's the IAU. I think 99.99999% of all planets will only ever receive a numerical designation, because there are just way too many to name. Latest estimate that I saw was at least 50 billion in our Milky Way.

Having said that, the major ones will be sure to get names - the first that we detect with life, the first that we send a probe to, the first that we visit. Way off in the future of course...

BTW those "star naming" companies that you see are not in anyway affiliated with the IAU. So you can pay them to "name a star" but all you're really doing is paying them to print a bit of paper. (Sounds like a good business to be in actually!)

I assume that a lot of work on this project will be used to plan the work done by this one: James Webb Space Telescope.

Ha! They did! Well they did a demo anyway - it was terrible! State of Shock in 1980...

It was eventually released with Mick Jagger instead of Freddy singing and did really well in both the US

Yep, that seems like real crazy talk to me.

It amazes me sometimes that 1) People like this get into power, and even when they do (say, like Gaddafi in a coup) 2) People/ other countries don't do something.

I realise that we need to respect other countries and their political systems, but surely the time has come to put short term political and financial goal aside and properly pressure dictatorial governments?

It sounds quite a lot like the Ares/ Orion set up for NASA's (now defunct) Constellation program. But I think they took your thought process a few steps further:

  • 1) They split the crew/ cargo sections and put them on their own launch stages, I believe this allowed greater flexibility and safety (humans on smaller rockets)

  • 2) They went with a capsule/ parachute system because I believe firstly it's most practical set up to put on top of a rocket and the parachute return is simple, safe, cheap and reliable.

I would have loved to see the Constellation program returning to the moon, that would have been amazing. Such a shame that it got cancelled.

James Webb will certainly be amazing, I can't wait though I think that it has been delayed again, so won't launch until 2014 or something.

I also hope that it deploys correctly - it's huge and has a massive amount of deployment to do once it reached it's orbit.

Should be able to resolve planets around other stars however!

Well, the OPLC (Olympic Park Legacy Company) has endorsed the West Ham bid. I'm not sure if that means that they get the stadium or if they need further endorsements?
