In this rack there are over half a dozen STS-1’s and I can see and STS-2, STS-1 is still the best long period instrument in the world. The standard to which all other comers need to meet. I wish I had one.
In this rack there are about 40 Quanterra Q330 data engines. These are arguable the best digitizers in the world. At about 15K each there are about $600,000 digitizers there. This is my idea of well spent taxpayers money. A gazillion times better than buying a small percentage of a Tomahawk.

The new Bridgeport is one of many great machines in the ASL machine shop. The also have a staff machinist that know how to use them.
These are a pair of “cold war” era shake tables, the one in the forground is the horizonatal. Theres is an STS-2.5 between the two tables.
This is one of the front doors to the ASL vault.
I asked Bob what was insides the STS-1 Horizontal so he just uncovered it and showed us!!!
This is Brett Nordgren (an OSOP collaborator and feed back guru) standing next to a vintage KS-36000 and on the floor a school AS!
I do love wire and this is an enviable wire rack. Wire is constant proof that this a place of work.
A closeup of what is inside an STS-1 Horizontal
a rack with four STS-2’s and seven STS-2.5’s and one Nanometrics 120P
A rack with several Nanometrics Trillium compacts and their travel cases and I can see a pair of Kinemetrics Basalts
This a Trillium compact on a step table used in the tilt mode. All this on a very nice granite slab. This TC was under test and under a cover and they stopped the test and took the cover off and showed me what was inside.
This is the rack with the digitizers for ANMO, the sensor is in a borehole 500 feet down. As you can see Bob just opend the door so I could see what was inside!
