Pictures of DASI
Here are some pictures of DASI at several points along its history.
[In each case you can click on the smaller image to get a large (jpeg) one.]
The DASI telescope superstructure (or mount) was designed in
collaboration with and built
by a company called Vertex/TIW at their New Mexico facility.
We went out to have a look when it was nearly finished.
DASI was shipped from New Mexico to the University of Chicago on a
large truck. These are some pictues of the arrival, moving it into
the "high bay" here, and assembling it for testing.
After preliminary testing in the high bay, DASI was moved outside for
astronomical tests. In August and September 1999, DASI was
disassembled and packed up to begin its journey to the South Pole.

Experiments" section of the CARA Virtual Tour.
