3rd June - Today's News: Thunderstorm, Tornado Likely Cause of Chinese Ship Capsize

A silly story from the BBC telling us that snow falls over Scotland's mountains - which is actually as unusual in May and early June as rain .....   It's not even as much as we saw in 2009 and 2010, for example, and lying snow was more extensive in some parts this time last year.   

Did comet impacts create the mystery lunar swirls?

And that age old connundrum: if a tree falls in the forest and there is no-one there to see it, does it make a sound? may finally have been answered.   It doesn't, because new test backs up theory that the world doesn't exist until we look at it, ergo if we're not looking at the tree it doesn't exist and a non-existent tree, obviously, makes no sound ....  (okay, that's not entirely quite true, but worth remembering as ansnwer next time you hear the question!)
