Future of Space Flight Symposium

Hi everyone,
I apologize for the long hiatus, I've been working on my second comprehensive exam so I haven't had much time to blog.  Coincidentally, on the 29th of April, we at CCLDAS will be hosting a public symposium on the Future of Commercial Space Flight.  Check the flier above for details.  If you can't make it, you can still watch the symposium by going to  Hope to see you all there!

Dust to the End!

I am very pleased to announce that we successfully ran the accelerator today at 2MV with signals all the way to the last detector (great job with the alignment guys!). I have attached an image of one of the faster but typical signals. The blue is the first detector, red third, and the black is the final detector (we also used the second detector for a time but only have three power supplies at this point). Please enjoy the picture! Congrats everyone, this is another huge step!
