I forgot this one…


A time lapse showing the docking process from inside.

I made a time lapse of Cynthia and me docking the telescope. This allows us to get up into the receiver cabin without going outside. From there, we can access all the electronics responsible for running the detectors, as well as the cryostats.

FYI, this is an absurdly large file (66 MB), so you may not want to look at it on a slow connection. Also, you may have to click on the picture to get the time lapse part.

  1. Wow, you DO exist….and obviously have found someone who knows how to cut hair at least reasonably well. Great pseudo-video, glad you remembered to post it!

  2. Woohoo! Fantastic vids, man. When I grow up, I want to be just like you.

    Are you posting this stuff up on YouTube?

    • Ed, that’s just a gif, not a true video, so I doubt that I’d be able to post it on youtube. Besides, uploading a full video would seriously tax our bandwidth.
