The best way to observe the sun is by projecting the image.

  1. Use two pieces of cardboard. (such as flaps from a box)
  2. Make a small pinhole in the centre of one piece.
  3. Take both pieces in your hand.
  4. Stand with your back to the sun.
  5. Hold the piece with the pinhole, then place the other piece (the screen) behind it.
  6. The sunlight will pass through the pinhole and form an image on the screen.
  7. Adjust the distance between the two pieces to change the size of the image.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire had all the winning ingredients:

  • A high-stakes game that got more dramatic the longer the contestant in the hotseat stayed;
  • A host that was charismatic and unreadable at the same time (Chris Tarrant);
  • Multiple choice questions with no time limit;
