Day 21, November 14, 2012

Somewhat slow day in the high bay yesterday. The cryostat continues to cool, requiring only minimal levels of interaction at the moment. We re-arranged some stuff in the high bay to allow work on covering the Baffle/Triangle Support (BTS), the structure that surrounds the entire experiment, with its aluminized mylar covering.

We also pulled our little boom lift out of its parking spot under the mezzanine because I'll be using it tomorrow to cover the BRO crates in silver teflon. The gondola team also worked on getting the inner frame properly balanced so they could start scan tests. In addition, Seth and our flight engineer, Jill, are making significant progress sorting out communications between the CSBF SIP (Science Instrument Package) electronics and our flight computer.
