Another quick run of the Hubble Telescope Nebula Challenge!!! This time with a whole new set up...we actually have the painted platforms with what we can only hope is close to the British Standards!!! We had a couple issues when we were getting the camera to calibrate to the colors...for some reason it didn't like yellow. After we got it to work the way we wanted. We decided to adjust the camera at a different angle , in doing so Dalton reset the camera and we had to start all over again....I think we are done for the night!!!
So Much To Do!!!!
Thought a quick break is much needed. Check this out, totally awesome!!!
Check out our new hoodies thanks to Hoodie Buddies we're jamming out while the class next door is in session. Here's a nice picture of Paul trying to ignore all of us.....

Okay, so check it out...We teamed up with CNM's FUSEMakerSpace! FUSEMakerSpace is a community center here in Albuquerque that provides the tools and equipment that allow members to design, prototype and create manufactured works. They also give members access to affordable, high quality classes as well as mentoring from other makers! Totally cool right?! It gets better....they helped us put our CNM HackerSpace logo onto stickers!!!! We will be passing them out at the competition ! Just ask any member!
