Day 47, 7/13/2012 -- The end is near!

The end of this phase of integration, that is -- Kyle is completing the final Ebert-Fastie scan tonight; I did one scan earlier and completed our suite of polarization modulation efficiency measurements.

Jeff returned from Minnesota today as well; his first task was to look at some of the data we took in his absence. Thankfully, it appears to be usable, so we don't have to re-do it! Jeff also put Cynthia to work making some cables for our upcoming absolute polarization angle calibration measurement.

The gondola crew started making preparations for the upcoming 'big lift' tomorrow -- putting the cryostat on the gondola. Tomorrow morning we head in early to start disconnecting cables and get the cryostat ready to mount on the gondola. So that means it's time for me to go to bed!

No pictures today, as I was too busy taking data to take pictures.
