DeckLab in the Sky

The new DeckLab is still capable of showing a portion of the 101 skyscraper and its peak tower towards the northeastern direction. The horizon is appreciably missing from the DeckLab view. As the DL will have uses for aeronautical engineering and elements of atmospheric phenomena, its orientation is perfectly suited.
NEW DeckLab: Since moving all Big Brain Lab and Space1 operations to a new location, many things have changed. The new facilities now allow a somewhat larger deck laboratory in the sky. The new lab is suspended upwards to a hundred feet in the air, facing a polar orientation of the sky.

DeckLab offers fundamental space for the conduction of aeronautical research, a mini launch pad for smaller spacecraft, and the study of weather phenomena.

LAB FACILITIES Facilities include these power hookups for a natural gas line, electricity, plus cold and hot water (see second photo).

THE OLD LAB The old lab was capable of showing a sky view down approximately from the zenith down to the horizon and spectacular views of the 101 skyscraper, currently the third largest building in the world. (see bottom photo) The photo shows 101 as seen in the pre-sunrise dawn sky on May 20th, 2014, before the move to a new lab location.
