"What can I tell you, my brother, my killer? What can I possibly say?" Leonard Cohen

I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
I'm glad you stood in my way.

Leonard Cohen

I am still waiting for the paper copy of my lab results.  The fax is on its way I have been told, again. I will post an update when it finally arrives.

But that won't stop me from having some fun. After my absolutely necessary nap, of course.

Tonight my wife and I are off to Art Center to see a documentary my son Ben made about Cal Tech and JBL and various artists' take on radio telescope images from deep space. Now that is a total escape to another world.

I have always loved Astronomy, radio interferometry and aperture synthesis. These techniques allowed radio sources to be imaged with unprecedented angular resolution. This give the observer a more powerful tool than optical telescopes especially when optical observations are inhibited for some reason or another. We owe radio astronomy to Karl Jansky of Bell Labs.
