Fantastic to hear UK astronaut Tim Peake is looking down from space and getting excited by the Blue Abyss project which we hope will be developed at our Knowledge Gateway research and technology park. We're working with Blue Abyss to help establish the world's deepest and largest research, training and development pool to support outer space and deep sea exploration.

Nothing definite about the nature of our alliance with the U.S.S.R. Last night everyone waited with much amusement to hear whether the Internationale was played after the national anthems of the other allies. [1] No such thing, of course. However, it was a long time before the Abyssinian national anthem was added to the others. They will ultimately have to play some tune to represent the U.S.S.R., but to choose it will be a delicate business.
[1] It was the custom of the BBC to play the national anthems of all Allied nations each Sunday evening. Peter Davison

《國際歌》(法文:L'Internationale)是國際共產主義運動中最著名的一首歌。這首歌也曾經是世界上最被廣泛傳唱的歌曲之一。原文(法語)的歌詞由歐仁·鮑狄埃在1871年所作(當時用《馬賽曲》的曲調演唱),皮埃爾·狄蓋特於1888年為其譜曲。這首歌被翻譯成世界上的許多種語言。傳統上,唱《國際歌》時,常舉手握拳致意。 《國際歌》不僅僅被共產主義者所傳唱,而且在很多國家中的社會主義者、社會民主黨人和無政府主義者中也廣泛流傳,曾經是第一國際和第二國際的會歌。共產國際(第三國際)的會歌並不是《國際歌》。
