Bronze (3/16)



  1. I'm surprised people haven't talked about the paralympic cauldron! I saw in an article about heatherwick that they made 3 sets of petals - one for testing, one for the olympic cauldron, and one for the paralympic cauldron. However, he says that they will be used differently in the paralympic cauldron...
  2. Heatherwick in his interview today said where the Bell was on the South end of the stadium. Not sure how it won't block some peoples' views.
  3. So where will it end up? You'll need a lot of gas pipes for 204 different nozzles.
  4. They have a tarp in the middle ringed by people it's there. They just showed it when they zoomed out
  5. They are putting all the flags up on the Tor. So the tor is out. It has to be the center.
  6. Does anyone know where the kids with the petals are going?
  7. These copper "petals" that each team is carrying look a lot like the tickets...they have to make up the cauldron. Everything's coming together. The cauldron will be assembled with 204 parts from each of the 204 nations in the center of the stadium.
  8. I should add, it is clear what the climactic moment is in the music...but they don't show the actual lighting. But given the camera angles it is clear where it is.
  9. at about 3:20 they announce that the Olympic flame is arriving. "John Smith passes to James Doe..." et cetera. There is a guy on a segway who is the torch as they are clearly practicing following him with the camera angles. He goes to an area covered by a tarp-like thing, there are some sound and visual effects, and then the fireworks start.
  10. Milenium dome is for an experience much like the sydney harbor bridge climb. People will be able to pay to climb the dome. PS if anyone has watched teh leaked dress rehearsal on the NBC website it is clear where the cauldron is.
  11. The NY Times just put up this picture of the inside of the stadium http://yfrog.com/z/nx28o4j You can see the "small cloud" directly above the tor. The location that people seemed to think would have teh cauldron is just to the left out of the screen...hopefully we will get more of these pictures soon!
  12. Interesting video on the official london2012 youtube channel about the Tor construction: Given this, it's hard to see it coming out of the tor.
