So, as drplokta pointed out yesterday, the transatlantic tunnel is now completed, with the drilling finishing yesterday. They've now installed the telectroscope and instantaneous communication with the strange people of Breuckelen is now possible. Although they are currently all asleep, so I waved at a light. I managed to snap a couple of shots of the machine's creator, Paul St George, who was observing his handiwork with stoic resolve. And a spring in his step. The staff were just as keen to look through as the couple of random punters who, like me, decided to get out early to beat the crowds, and I suspect that by the time I left several times as many officials had waved at the empty pier than non-officials.

I have a set of piccies, and there is of course a flickr group. There's also a blog of how it all came about, with some history of the tunneling project.

Thanks so much for letting us know about this.

I have a very close friend in New York who has never met Jakob (she's like my American mum basically, or I guess mom) so I wrote to them to explain why it was a special case. They said indeed it was, and we have an appointment to view one another via the telectroscope on the 31st may. WOO.
