Eric Mamajek, an astronomer at the University of Rochester discovered an object with a ring system 200 times the length of Saturn's.
By Matthew Denker

This week Eric Mamajek, an astronomer at the University of Rochester discovered an object—either a planet or a failed star—with a ring system 200 times the length of Saturn’s. Mamjek’s discovery external link is blowing the minds of astronomy geeks worldwide.

From outer space, to local development to just plain news of the weird, here are your RocLinks for this past week…

Farewell Carnegie Place

The Carnegie Building on the University of Rochester’s former Prince Street campus was opened in 1911 as the first home of the Engineering School. Early Tuesday morning a massive fire ripped through the building. The roof later collapsed and the owner decided the damage was too great to save the structure. The building was in the middle of a renovation. It has now been torn down external link.

Take the Art World by Storm

Are you a young artist? The Corn Hill Arts Festival could be your break. The details have been released on the Art Festival website external link. Best of luck if you enter.

Doing the Hard Work For Us

Sometimes I wonder why we labor so hard at the links post when the D&C is happy to pay someone for a list of 10 things to do this weekend external link. Although to our credit, we don’t usually refer anyone to events in Gates.

Feel the Power

RG&E has received an award for $16.5 million external link from the federal government for improvements at their hydroelectric power plant on the Genesee at Middle Falls. Apparently this is in addition to $111 million already spent recently. Little known fact, the plant powers 31,000 homes, or a little over 10% of all houses in Monroe County.

Better Late than Never

Sorry we missed the first one, but you have 9 more incredible lectures external link being hosted by the Rochester Community Design Center. All lectures are held at Gleason Works, and by the second half the year, you should be able to hit 3HB afterwards.

ICYMI

And finally, Rochester is one of three cities external link still in the running to receive what the article leaves opened-ended as millions of dollars from the department of defense for the country’s first Photonics Manufacturing Institute, or Integrated Photonics Institute for Manufacturing Innovation (IP-IMI) – and I’m not making that up. What’s an IP-IMI you ask? How about you read this page external link about it and try to make sense if it for yourself. I’ll be busy working out why Chuck Schumer is trying to get $250M from NYS to support a $110M investment from the federal government.

As always, use the comments below as open discussion for anything in these links – or let us know if there’s a topic you’d like to see us hit more aggressively in future RocLinks. Have a great weekend!

    Er, what’s your problem with Gates? That PlayDate Rochester event sounded like fun; I might have gone if I wasn’t busy.

  2. ACW says:

    Actually, the reports of the Carnegie Building’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. The shell of the building was still standing yesterday.
