Zooniverse at Mauna Kea, Day 6: This is the End
Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5

In the meantime, Becky and I shot a short video tour of the dome a couple days ago you can check out:
Tomorrow, we check out of Hale Pohaku and head down to Hilo for a night. Then I’m off to Chicago and Becky and Sandor are back to Oxford. Even with the bad weather, sleep deprivation, and static electricity, this trip has been a really great experience for me. I now know infinitely more about radio astronomy than I did before! I hope the people doing the real work were able to get all the data they needed.
