It had been dropped once before due to lack of evidence

Back in August the swedish authorities dropped the warrant due to lack of evidence:

'According to media reports, Assange slept with two women during a visit to Sweden in August. One of them has been quoted by a Swedish newspaper as saying that the sex was consensual for a start, but ended with abuse.

In an interview with Aftonbladet, one of the women dismissed claims that the allegations had been orchestrated by the Pentagon.'

maintain they didnt move it much?

From the link-

'You see, despite the warning on the front of the new Xbox 360, Nick picked up the system to move it from horizontal to vertical position while the game was booting'

Now how many of you have tried that while a disc was spinning in any drive?

Fair play, I am a biochemist so my experience of other departments is limited.

further away?

The station is closer to the academic area of Cambridge, its further from the private science park.

As long as they still give free tours and demos during the science festival all will be good.
