Don’t worry if you didn’t catch last month’s Draconids or Orionids meteor showers, because tonight the largest moon since 1948 will be visible over London. Yes – the supermoon is back, and it's absolutely massive. When can I see the Supermoon? Since the clocks went back and the nights have started earlier, stargazing hours have [...]

City-dwellers paused for two minutes' silence in memory of fallen soldiers this morning, while Londoners stopped in their tracks at their workplaces, landmarks and on the streets.

In last night's episode candidates attempted a brand new task: crowdfunding some cycling products. Essentially, all they had to do was set up a crowdfunding page, pull off a snazzy PR stunt at a train station and pitch the products, which were already good, to some bike shops. Easy, right? Wrong, because even simple tasks are rendered impossible in the [...]
