signal to noise, schlieren and unseen satellites

Ilan advised us " don't worry about books" but we said "we need some new knowledge" and "it's just a phase in the process we need to go through."
We got our library cards today and hunted down books in the varied libraries spread across campus. We weren't so far off at the beginning of our time here when we said we felt like Anthropologists, as half the books were in the anthropology library.

At sunset we hung out on a windy highway bridge in an attempt to see the southern horizon.
A satellite was launched down the coast and it was meant to make an impressive display, but the 16 minute window came and went and nothing happened. It had been launched, but we were not to see it this time.
