Day 20, November 13, 2012 -- Cooling

Today, more progress. Cryostat leak check in the morning, then we cooled it with liquid nitrogen in the evening after pumping the whole day.

On the gondola side, the cryo-dummy was installed today so the ACS team can do scan tests before the cryostat goes in, and Andrei and Kyle finished covering all of the LCS radiator panels with silver teflon.

Also, another EBEX member, Co-I Matt from Montreal, arrived.
