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

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.
