Terror Of The Towers 2002 Theme Song

The Terror Of The Towers 2002 Theme Song. They played this song on the event all across the park. The Terror Of The Towers was one of Alton Towers spooky halloween events. This was the start of the walk-through attraction, inside the real-life towers themselves. Terror of the Towers has been staged by Lynton V Harris of Horrorwood Studios and is designed with a fright factor never before seen in the UK. If the wind is right and the smoke machine in the queue is going then from Towers Street, the Towers are shrouded in an eerie mist which looks really effective. A crumbling arch sits over the entrance to the queue and some information about the ride is displayed here on the 'Fun & Safety Guide'. Might be worth taking a read of this before you join the queue. The sounds of a heavy storm and deep, eerie music are pumped out into the queuing area and give the line a bit of atmosphere. Depending on the wind direction, the smoke can result in the whole queue doing a 'Stars in their Eyes' type effect. Further into the queue there are some charming gravestones, which look freshly dug. The others are along similar lines, but we won't spoil those for you. Further into the queue, bats hang from the trees and lights are placed to provide clever illumination as night falls. I thought it was too good to be true, and I was partly right. Understandably the queue line was going to be temporary but it looked rather hastily assembled. A lick of dark green paint on the railings wouldn't have been much effort and would've enhanced the area greatly. Also no attempt has been made to conceal the large, 3-pin, bright blue lighting connectors and these stand out. A final gripe - the queue is slow moving and there is no indication of how long is left, nor is the end in sight. However we can tell you that once you're out of the end of the tunnel there is only a fairly small amount of queuing to go (and this bit is a little more entertaining). Once you get inside, the experience is absolutey brilliant, very different to anything I've experienced before. Due to the nature of the attraction we could spoil it with a review... so we won't put one online for a while yet. A "ride-photo" is also taken inside the attraction so try and smile! These can be purchased upon exit at a cost of £4.50. Unfortunately the throughput of Terror of the Towers is very low, letting groups of 6 people in every 2 or so minutes results in a throughput of around 200 people per hour. This does mean the queue moves slowly and you could be in for a long wait but I feel it is well worth it. And all the other queues in the park will seem extremely quick moving afterwards...!

Manhattan Project | Wikipedia audio article

This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Manhattan Project Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= The Manhattan Project was a research and development undertaking during World War II that produced the first nuclear weapons. It was led by the United States with the support of the United Kingdom and Canada. From 1942 to 1946, the project was under the direction of Major General Leslie Groves of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Nuclear physicist Robert Oppenheimer was the director of the Los Alamos Laboratory that designed the actual bombs. The Army component of the project was designated the Manhattan District; Manhattan gradually superseded the official codename, Development of Substitute Materials, for the entire project. Along the way, the project absorbed its earlier British counterpart, Tube Alloys. The Manhattan Project began modestly in 1939, but grew to employ more than 130,000 people and cost nearly US$2 billion (about $22 billion in 2016 dollars). Over 90% of the cost was for building factories and to produce fissile material, with less than 10% for development and production of the weapons. Research and production took place at more than 30 sites across the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Two types of atomic bombs were developed concurrently during the war: a relatively simple gun-type fission weapon and a more complex implosion-type nuclear weapon. The Thin Man gun-type design proved impractical to use with plutonium, and therefore a simpler gun-type called Little Boy was developed that used uranium-235, an isotope that makes up only 0.7 percent of natural uranium. Chemically identical to the most common isotope, uranium-238, and with almost the same mass, it proved difficult to separate the two. Three methods were employed for uranium enrichment: electromagnetic, gaseous and thermal. Most of this work was performed at the Clinton Engineer Works at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. In parallel with the work on uranium was an effort to produce plutonium. After the feasibility of the world's first artificial nuclear reactor was demonstrated in Chicago at the Metallurgical Laboratory, it designed the X-10 Graphite Reactor at Oak Ridge and the production reactors in Hanford, Washington, in which uranium was irradiated and transmuted into plutonium. The plutonium was then chemically separated from the uranium, using the bismuth phosphate process. The Fat Man plutonium implosion-type weapon was developed in a concerted design and development effort by the Los Alamos Laboratory. The project was also charged with gathering intelligence on the German nuclear weapon project. Through Operation Alsos, Manhattan Project personnel served in Europe, sometimes behind enemy lines, where they gathered nuclear materials and documents, and rounded up German scientists. Despite the Manhattan Project's tight security, Soviet atomic spies successfully penetrated the program. The first nuclear device ever detonated was an implosion-type bomb at the Trinity test, conducted at New Mexico's Alamogordo Bombing and Gunnery Range on 16 July 1945. Little Boy and Fat Man bombs were used a month later in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, respectively. In the immediate postwar years, the Manhattan Project conducted weapons testing at Bikini Atoll as part of Operation Crossroads, developed new weapons, promoted the development of the network of national laboratories, supported medical research into radiology and laid the foundations for the nuclear navy. It maintained control over American atomic weapons research and production until the formation of the United States Atomic Energy Commission in January 1947.
