Assembling Spider

Yesterday we test-assembled Spider. Spider, in all its carbon-fiber-and-finely-crafted-joints glory, is the most beautiful gondola ever created—in my humble opinion. Sadly, finely-crafted has its limits and there are a few misfit pieces.

We were joined by Emma, Jamil, and Steffi: our new student, returning student, and guest photographer (visiting Juan).

Baffle Gluing

It Begins

It Begins

Last week the last of three Spider starcam baffles was glued. Natalie and Juan have become the de-facto gluing people, so they continued doing their thing. This was an easy job, but I felt like having pictures.
