|At left, from the NW, a look back in time as it were...in the foreground is the new SPT with BICEP (about to go into its third and last season) behind it. Further back is MAPO with the defunct (decommissioned after the 2005 winter) VIPER dish and the QUaD telescope due to be decommed in this 2008 summer--probably already, since some of the electronics got fried only 2 weeks before the scheduled shutdown. Further in the background is the cold AST/RO building, home of that project which was also shut down after the 2005 winter. And that small structure on the right--that is Building 61, home of the power distribution stuff and the backup generator (SR).|
