George Seielstad knows what it’s like to have a massive telescope fall apart on your watch.

Seielstad was director at Green Bank Observatory in West Virginia when he got a very bad call on Nov. 15, 1988. “You have a telescope down,” the voice on the phone said. It could have been no big deal, a minor electronics failure, perhaps. But it was much worse. The observatory’s prime 300-foot (91 meters) telescope was the most literal definition of “down” — it had simply collapsed, with no warning.

“That’s seared into your memory, it’s really crushing,” Seielstad told Space.com. He drove out that evening to see the telescope for himself. “It was a mess. It was a twisted wreckage.”

Claudia Winkleman has been left “speechless” after landing the prestigious Saturday morning show on BBC Radio 2.

The ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ presenter is to take over the 10am-1pm slot which Graham Norton will vacate later this year and she admitted it is a “privilege and an honour” to have been given the job.

She said: “I’m not often speechless but the chance to be with the wonderful Radio 2 listeners every Saturday has left me, quite frankly, gobsmacked. I hope my voice comes back in time for the first show as I can no longer simply rely on a fake tan and a fringe. There’s nobody I’d rather be with at the weekend, it’s a privilege and an honour.”

And station bosses are “over the moon” with their new regular presenter.
