Longitude tourism

The last few posts on the Longitude Project blog have seen Richard and I travelling again, but this time in Europe rather than the new world, and indulging in some longitude tourism. Richard, at the Scientific Instruments Commission conference in Kassel, has been tracking Tobias Mayer in his Mayer odyssey parts one and two. I, meanwhile, have been in Paris enjoying a French sojourn. I’ll be posting more on the conference I was attending here later, but for more on the Greenwich-Paris and longitude connections, read more here.
