Scorpion will kick in $200, and you can use our US$ VISA if needed. That would save a few $ on the conversion.
We are sourcing the acrylic sheet, and will pass it on to Grant when it arrives. We also have a bunch of laser-engraveable alumimum dog tags (meant for both dogs and people) that we could donate. Custom engraving owner info, etc. should bring in some $. I’ll give a few samples to Grant.
As part of our ISO certification we had to develop a lockout policy for each machine and post it next to that machine (mostly just “unplug the machine and don’t plug it in if it is unplugged”). This might be a good idea for the Space?
Roland: Is the fact that Versatile is closing public knowledge? Do you know if they are having a closing out sale or anything? Scorpion buys some stuff from them, and it might be good for us to “stock up” on some items before they close their doors.
Have you guys seen the YouTube videos where they attach a GoPro to a weather balloon and send it up. Some of them go high enough to where you can see the curvature of the earth. Anyways, I’ve always thought it looked like a fun thing to do. A couple of us were talking about it on Friday, and I think we might try this out. Would KM be interested in participating? Scorpion would pay for all the matierials . I have spoken with the Big Little Science Center and they are in.
