Of course this is merely cover up wasteful research. ;)

Yea it seems incredible they can really get it to go that fast.

Yes, this time it did not self destruct. It flew as planned and survived recovery intact.

<edit> Sorry that's all wrong. I recently read the SCRAMJet was not recovered and it broke up upon hitting the ocean. I also understand that was as intended.

Tides. In England I believe, the first image being Dover.

Those high and low tides are amazing. I've not seen that big a difference personally.

Very shallow shore slopes? Here on the West Coast (of the US) I've seen mostly fairly steep drop offs.
Here is a photo essay of one family's kayaking adventure around Holy Island off the coast of Northumbria, UK, which is the location of the remains of Lindesfarne Abbey and Castle. From that series here are two pictures:

A refuge hut that travellers can use if trapped on the causeway by the tides, about an hour before high tide:

The same refuge hut from a different angle after they had gone around the island:

Image

An aerial view of Holy Island (on the above linked site though not part of the photo essay) near low tide:

Image

Note that the land bridge between the island and the mainland towards the top of that picture is all submerged during high tide.

I did go to Holy Island myself while on a trip to Scotland (taking this side trip south specifically for this site). I was fortunate enough to get to the mainland side about a half-hour before the tides got low enough to allow cars to go across, and I did a leisurely tour of both the castle and abbey ruins before returning to the mainland before being cut off by the tides.

Tides are quite variable by location.

The illuminated Gospels from Lindesfarne are amazing.

Nice art. I bet knitting and sewing were big back then. ;)
