Comm2 Day 20: Off the telescope

Today we said goodbye to Alfio, Runa, Kate, and Alycia.

Here are Kate, Laird, Runa, Alfio, and Alycia hard at work in the Clay control room.

Then we removed the ASM, Clio, and the Nas from the telescope. It went well.

Laird and Juan lead the effort removing the NAS from the telescope.
The NAS is packaged up and lifted off with a crane.

Exhausted though we may be, we will miss this place after we’re gone.

The other day at sunrise, the sun on the clouds looked like a forest fire coming over the mountains
