Click to enlargeEverything unloaded in the bay.

Click to enlargeThe outer frame regains its legs.
Click to enlargeOld-timey Palestine.

Click to enlargeAnother shot of ARCADE with Josh and Barth in the background.
Click to enlargeThe large thing on the left is the ARCADE dewar, basically a large bucket, which is filled with liquid helium. The rest of ARCADE (on the right) slides down into the dewar from the top.
Click to enlargeA very large O-ring on the top of the ARCADE dewar.
Click to enlargeThe top of the payload. The top of it can rotate, which is why things don't seem to match up.
Click to enlargeEnzo inspects the ARCADE dewar.
Click to enlargeThe inside of the dewar. As advertised, it really is just a big bucket.
Click to enlargeAnother shot of the top.
Click to enlargeA view down one of the large feed horns.
Click to enlargeA close up of the experiment. The cone like structures are the feed horns: different sizes for different wavelengths of radiation. The horns are all tilted thirty degrees from straight up (but they don't all point in the same direction, which is not a problem, since the whole telescope spins).
Click to enlargeARCADE's electronics backpack.
Click to enlargeAn important looking bit of plumbing in our bay.

Click to enlargeDon't worry Matt: we've got you covered.

Click to enlargeEnzo reprograms Arwen's BIOS.
Click to enlargeBarth doing what Barth does a lot of: wading through kst emails.
Click to enlargeSIP Simulator (that's the laptop there) set up, with sneeze guard in place. The SIP Simulator forms the upper echelon of the telemetry nook.

Click to enlargeEnzo soldering off the old DC/DC.
Click to enlargeEnzo prepares the PV for the World Cup final. (In case you couldn't guess, he'll be cheering for Italy.)
