Day 15, November 8, 2012 -- Leak free!

Big news today -- the cryostat is leak free! This means we pre-cool the cryostat with liquid nitrogen tomorrow. But when I say "we", I really mean "someone else" -- because I'm taking the day off! In other big news, Franky has the DfMUX system completely up and running, with 100% of our readout boards installed and functioning in our readout crates.

KyleH, Britt, and Michele continued doing gondola mechanical work while Joy spent some quality time outdoors calibrating our differential GPS system.

Tonight is "American Night" at the New Zealand base just up the road from McMurdo, Scott Base, so a few of us are going there to check it out.
