Dark Sector Lab Bubble Panorama

South Pole workers have been busy excavating and compacting snow next to the Dark Sector Lab (DSL). Construction on the large 10m South Pole Telescope (SPT) is scheduled to begin next summer. This is the area where the telescope tower will be constructed.

Update:I took another panorama of the same building in September 2007. Two new telescopes, BICEP and SPT, have been added to the building.
