The Lab: It... VORKS!
After a rocky start...
(lab renovation delays, supply chain issues, and ESPECIALLY technical issues in instrument set-up... that's what happens when you do custom built - very much fun but also time-consuming)...
... the instruments finally talk to each other!
(The trigger finally is integrated, all controllable from one program (screw you, MatLab engine compatibility issues who have cost us some sanity).)
The proof of principle study/experiment is happening. There's a lot of excitement, relief, and energy coming together this summer! Stay tuned!

The history of ideas still struggles to remember the names of notable women philosophers. Mary Hesse is a salient example.
