Day 28, November 21, 2012 -- Mirror, mirror, on the...gondola

The mirrors are mounted! We are moving ever closer to having a fully functioning telescope. Besides mounting the mirrors, we refined the routing of the cables as we moved the gondola through its elevation range. We also started assembling the BTS and made some measurements to figure out if we can rotate the experiment in the high bay once everything is fully assembled. Turns out we can -- if we take the wheels off!
