  • Artist's vision of Pluto proves out of this world

    A renowned astro artist has described his delight at the incredible pictures beamed back from Pluto which bear a remarkable resemblance to his own predictions created 25 years ago. Birmingham-based artist David A Hardy was inspired to guess – with a lot of research – what the then ninth planet in the Solar System looked like. Since then, Pluto’s status has been downgraded to a “dwarf planet” but the New Horizons space probe last week made a historic flypast after a 10-year journey to the extremes of our little bit of the galaxy. Mr Hardy, who was born in Birmingham and has lived in Hall Green for 40 years, said: “For most of my life, Pluto has been the ninth planet so I wasn’t very happy when the International Astronomical Union demoted it to a ‘dwarf planet’.

    This kind of thing has long been common enough in central London, but not in the wilds of Brent for heaven’s sake. I cite this story not to criticise foreigners for buying up London property - that’s their affair - but to point out that it is precisely this sort of thing which is underpinning Britain’s economic recovery. It’s fair to say that it is not an entirely healthy state of affairs, never mind growing evidence that London property is being quite extensively used for money laundering purposes.
