And the Cradle Will Rock

A smooth Saturday here, with two major accomplishments.  In the morning, we moved the instrument cradle into the gondola, an operation requiring the crane and a bit of body English.  After an unfathomably slow lunch out (we waited an hour after ordering for our food to come), we returned to pull the signal cables through into the electronics bay in the back of the gondola.  Monday we should start testing the electronics.

Making a few more connections on the cryostat.

Zach, Alan, and Jim secure the cradle in the gondola.

In place!

At risk of overdoing the time-lapse thing, a video:

Tomorrow, a much needed day of rest.  Hopefully we’ll squeeze in some sightseeing as well.

Kicking back a bit after a long week!
