    Thanks Not_Fritz - Noticed the 2022 "boom" got some "air time". Really hoping to see that one.

    And the balloon observing -
    "After recovering the retrievable pieces from Antarctica, Fissel and the BLAST team rebuilt the apparatus and attached a polarimeter to create the revamped BLAST-Pol."
    I want that job

    Good Read, thanks again!
