Today, HELSTF is being shuttered. The toxic brew they used for the chemical lasers has been drained and carted off. Today the contractors are being escorted off site. It has been almost 8 years since I left, but in many ways, the camaraderie we had amongst the doers was great and missed. Shooting things down with a freakin flash light (albeit powered by deuterium and fluorine instead of a battery) was one of the kewler things I've done in my career.

I had wanted to walk through the LSTC one last time. And the Test Cells.

Obviously, the Govie management couldn't adapt to the solid state world. That doesn't surprise me.


Goodbye, HELSTF. It was fun. Even if the drive wasn't.
