    The pitch drop experiment

    TCD pitch drop drips five years earlier than expected! The detached drop was noted by chance by Hugh Conlon, a Physics student, on Friday the 19th of October. How much this is due to its new location in the Berkeley Library, where it is now placed underneath a specially made glass cover, is not clear.
