Meet Aluna. Is it a work of art or of science? Well, it's a bit of both actually. East London artist Laura Williams and David Rooney, curator of time at London's Science Museum, are members of a team hoping to build this lunar clock at East India Dock in London. Three large concentric rings made from recycled glass will show the lunar phase, the lunar day cycle and the rise and fall of tidal waters in the Thames (the "pull" of the moon). The team hope to have Aluna built by 2012, in ... er ... time for the Olympic Games.
