‘Animate Earth’ competition winner!
The winner of the ‘Animate Earth’ competition is **Andy Wimbush** from Oxford, who correctly guessed that James Lovelock was in fact the inventor (almost by accident if I remember the story correctly) of the microwave oven. Only one person guessed it wrong, although much to my disappointment they didn’t think that he had invented the nodding dog or had a hand in unleashing Barney the Dinosaur on humanity. Well done Andy, and thanks to everyone else who entered.
