Darwin Centre Opens

Yesterday, Prince William opened the new Darwin Centre at the Natural History Museum, London, with the help of Sir David Attenborough and a live tarantula named Sarah. Rather the royal personage than me. Tarantulas might look cute and cuddly, but they have serious fangs if they feel in the mood for a bite. This photo shows the elegant hi-tech "cocoon" at the heart of the Darwin Centre, which cost £78m. It opens to the public today. For some inexplicable reason, up to 200 scientists will be on display as well as the entomological exhibits. I mean, when you've seen one guy in a white coat fill a test tube, you've seen them all. Give me butterflies.
