Hey, today one outstanding monument of the “glorious fifties” the Atomium, has its renovation almost completed ! Read more about it (in French, sorry) from a Belgian newspaper :L’Atomium a fini sa mue – La Libre

I don’t know what the renovation will turn out to be. In the article they talk about stripes of blue white led lights around the bawls and everything. They ‘ve already replaced aluminium plates with inox ones… Which makes it all so shiny… brr.. weird, i told myself, as i passed by the Atomium today. But hey, at least it means it will stay another 50 years :) About those leds : I doubt it will make any needed after effect _ the monument in itself is so astonishing i fear that kind of cheap tricks may just as well make it look like another christmas tree…

We’ll see…
