Liquid Helium and Shiny Things

From November 26th to December 1st.

With Theo mounted on the gondola, more critical operations can proceed. The cryo team can start filling liquid helium to get things extra cold. And the space formerly occupied by Theo is used to assemble the sun shields. These need to be covered in aluminized mylar, which makes them shiny and pretty (plus opaque, cooler in the sun, and radio interference blocking). Several people are engaged in arts and crafts for several days to complete the covering.
