History of black Brits brought to life in artist’s stunning collection of images from last 100 years

***EXCLUSIVE*** The overlooked history of Black Britons has been brought to life in a series of colourised images depicting the highs and lows from the last one-hundred years. Eye-opening images show commonwealth citizens at various stages of their journey to a new life in Britain, aboard HMT Windrush, arriving at Customs Hall in Southampton and waiting in London’s iconic Victoria station. Other images show influential and successful Black Britons and commonwealth citizens, such as footballer and WW1-hero, Walter Tull, Francis Gqobo of the famous African Choir and Paul Stephenson, an Essex-born social worker who would go on to lead the successful Bristol Bus Boycott and eventually receive an OBE in 2009. The images were professionally colourised by Tom Marshall, 32, from Melton Mowbray, England, in response to the recent anti-racism protests in the US and all over the world. When the ex-troopship „Empire Windrush” docked in Southampton on June 22, 1948, it carried 482 people from Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica and other former colonies. The journey had cost each of them the equivalent of over Ł1000 in today’s money. These commonwealth citizens were the first of almost 600,000 who would travel to Britain over the next few decades to start new lives and help rebuild the country after the devastating effects of World War 2. In 2019, following a series of high-profile reports that members of the "Windrush Generation" who had been granted indefinite leave in Britain had in fact been wrongly deported, a Home Office inquiry into the matter prompted an apology from Home Secretary Priti Patel.

Woman transforms garden into trendy chill out space for just £100 using bargains from Homebase

***EXCLUSIVE*** WORCESTERSHIRE, UK; This woman's patio is unrecognisable after a makeover using just a stencil and some paint - and it only cost £250. Receptionist and blogger, Ruth Cornford (25) from Worcestershire, UK, had been looking to transform her problematic garden for quite some time.

Unique green glow spotted at Mars

ESA’s ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter has detected glowing green oxygen in Mars’ atmosphere - the first time that this emission has been seen around a planet other than Earth. On Earth, glowing oxygen is produced during polar auroras when energetic electrons from interplanetary space hit the upper atmosphere. This oxygen-driven emission of light gives polar auroras their beautiful and characteristic green hue. The aurora, however, is just one way in which planetary atmospheres light up. The atmospheres of planets including Earth and Mars glow constantly during both day and night as sunlight interacts with atoms and molecules within the atmosphere. Day and night glow are caused by slightly different mechanisms: night glow occurs as broken-apart molecules recombine, whereas day glow arises when the Sun’s light directly excites atoms and molecules such as nitrogen and oxygen. On Earth, green night glow is quite faint, and so is best seen by looking from an „edge on” perspective - as portrayed in many spectacular images taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS). This faintness can be an issue when hunting for it around other planets, as their bright surfaces can drown it out. This green glow has now been detected for the first time at Mars by the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter.
