|The view from my hotel room.
|The Fort Sumner Super 8 motel.
|Looking west down the road from the Super 8 (into town). Note Sprout's Cafe. Note the Billy the Kid Country Inn. Note the sign to the airport.
|Looking east down the road from the Super 8 (out of town). Note, erm, well, nothing.
|The Billy the Kid Museum.
|The Fort Sumner Industrial Park with sites available for (oddly enough) Industry. I ca'n't figure out what, exactly, has been donated. This is the edge of the airport land. Note the High bay in the distance.
|Fort Sumner Municipal Airport and Industrial Development Park.
|The airport itself. The large hangar in the foreground houses the machine shop and also various NSBF vehicles. The high-bay is behind it.
|Lunch at Sadie's. From left: Greg Tucker, Mark Devlin, Gaelen Marsden, Matt Truch.
|Lunch at Sadie's. From left: Chris Semisch, Jaspaul Chung, Mark Halpern, Marie Rex, Jeff Klein.
|Sadie's. Note the open signs. Hours of operation are pseudorandom (and not reflective of the one posted).
|Matt, Jeff, Greg and Marie contemplating the cryostat.
|The inside of the optics box. The prominent round things are the mounts for the filters. At left you can see one of the Bolometer Detector Arrays (BDAs). The black stuff is a mixture of carbon and stycast (an epoxy).
|Chris attaching the heat exchanger to the inner frame.
|The NASA Logo (The "Worm") on the side of the High-Bay. The Worm was retired in 1992 in favour of the old NASA Insignia (The "Meatball"). This should give you a good idea of the last time the exterior of the high-bay was painted.
|Looking south from the High-Bay, across the airport runway.
|Looking south-east form the High-Bay. The town's water tower can be seen in the distance.
|Chris and Mark contemplate the gondola.
|The conference continues.
|Hrm... they seem to have done this a fair bit.
|The BLAST fleet. The UBC car (foreground) and the Penn car (background) attempted to box in the Brown car. It eventually escaped.
|Mark and Gaelen spray painting unpainted but exposed aluminum.
|System administration is always fun...
|A view of the high-bay. The gondola's together, but nothing is on it, yet.
|Another view of the high-bay. Just in front of Matt, Marie and Greg you can see the open cryostat with the rectangular optics box on top of it. The cylinder in front of the optics box is the helium-3 fridge.
|The radioactive materials locker is strategically located to ensure people have to pass by it.
|Local high-bay fauna.
