Thanks mom for the Santa hat, the folks say it brings in the holiday. It's pretty warm too.
There were a few instruments lined up outside the ANITA payload station. The first machine was a mock 'neutrino' emitter... it sends out an vibration that the ANITA machine is supposed to pick up. The second was another audio device which you can see in the foreground. Behind that was the laptop station and remote viewing area for Dr. Gorham. They had been doing testing on ANITA all day long, things were good except for a harddrive bit the dust, so they replaced it. Other than that it's picking up all the signals that it needs too.
Although chaotic, clutter scattered disorderly amongst the place is in order through the eye of the maker ;)
Uhoh, what I wasn't hoping to hear... the wind is picking up. One of the NASA leads came out and gave team ANITA the word to shut down and try again tomorrow.
So, it's rescheduled to go off tomorrow. I won't be able to take time off work and view it, but my love is in the painting. No matter where you go, no matter what happens... I'm with you ANITA! Good luck Dr. Gorham, let's hear the Neutrino. Godspeed.
