Armando Riccardi is here. That means it is all going to be fine. Seriously – stop worrying.
O.k. Maybe worry a little. We had a 6.2 magnitude earthquake today, almost right under us. That’s telescope shaking, rock slide causing, all work stopping strong. Strong enough that Armando abandoned the ASM in the cleanroom. Here’s a map:
The valley between us and the epicenter had clouds of dust rising, presumably from rock slides. [check back, I’ll post some pics when I get them]
In the end everything is fine. Nothing broke and we just kept working.
Progress was made on site cleanliness as well.
And we discovered what “the problem has been dealt with” actually meant. The Viscacha den in the attic of the ASB was screened over.
