We were interrupted for a short while this morning by a fire alarm in which we all experienced the famous Manchester rain. Damp Manchester, I am reliably informed, is the reason for the cotton industry being based here as it kept the cotton moist. After getting back in the dry I get into the Super K pool, wading further and further into the centre hanging balloons.
Lunch time now and we have installed half of the balloons (PMTs) in the Super K Sonic Booooum tunnel! We string them together and then hang them on the wire support structure. We have a production chain Balloons – > Strings -> Tunnel and it is working like clock work, we hope to finish the tunnel by the end of the day.
It is looking so good and, as a famous particle physicist once sung, things can only get better.
