Light show marks 800th anniversary of Cambridge University

The home to "some of the most significant scientific breakthroughs in history - including the splitting of the atom and the discovery of the structure of DNA," Cambridge University in England celebrates its 800th anniversary with worldwide events and an "exuberant" atmosphere.

One of the events in celebration of the anniversary was a light show projected on to the Senate House and Old Schools which remembered "iconic moments and illustrations by Downing College alumnus and former Children's Laureate Quentin Blake."
