    I know we’re embarking on an era of change, but have they now moved Friday ahead of Thursday?

    It is Thursday, John!
    [Hah–oh man, that’s kind of embarrassing! Wishful thinking, I guess. –J.]

    Schlieren photography isn’t new. Not even close. We used this technique when I was an undergrad engineering student in the 1970s, mostly to study the airflow over airplane wings. It wasn’t new then. So, been there, done that. But still cool after all these years.

    Thanks for the Crystal Cave — it reminds me of The Fortress of Solitude. Only hot.
