Moving more instruments
The new science room takes shape
Cloudbase is an upward pointing laser that determines cloud height by measuring back-scatter, giving us a graphical display of the sky above the station. This tool is essential for aircraft weather reports, as pilots need detailed observations every hour while in flight. Moving it was a complex job involving cranes, cherry-pickers and a gang of people to run the complex cable routing. I was a little concerned the extra cable length would be too long for the transmitter, but it fired up straight away.
