Final HRS components leaves Durham

Today all of the smaller or more sensitive components of HRS left Durham to be air freighted to Cape Town. These consist of all of the optics, detectors, mechanisms, controllers, etc. They should arrive early next week, ahead of the main shipment which left by ship earlier this month (see blog post on 8 Aug).

The Durham team arrive on 1 Sep and plan to begin reassembly of the instrument at SALT during the first week of Sep.
