busy weekend

So, the Race Around the World was held this weekend, with both human and engine-powered contingents. IceCube had a particularly cool float:

The race course provided a great vantage to get photos of the deconstructing Dome:


The station has also changed a lot in complexion since I first came here in 2007. Long gone is the tacky-looking plywood cladding, which is now covered by this dark paneling that is still being installed on a few areas of the station's exterior.

Hopefully this week will go quickly and without too many hitches. Our band, which has now officially been dubbed SECURITY IN NOISE will have a couple more practices and a sound check before we take the stage as the second of three bands this coming Saturday night.
