Ok, so you’ve completed that giant 18,000-piece jigsaw puzzle, now what? Well, you might not want to take it apart again, at least not for a while. The folks at the South Pole decided to give theirs a place of honor on the wall in the B2 science lab. Last week at the Pole was relatively quiet. There had been a visiting Basler jet earlier but then no more flights were scheduled for the week. They’ll get there eventually. IceCube winterover Johannes took advantage of the down time to help out the South Pole Telescope machinist.
