A long and hard journey for a better basement laboratory is nearing the end of the destruction phase! Insurance claims had to be settled, work paid by insurance had to be done and in between there was a lot of hard work to do ourselves. Introduction to this project can be found in Part 1. Basement renovation is a slow proces, as there is a house sitting on top of it.
If you can not wait for new videos to appear after this basement renovation and really just want to get into a project RIGHT now. I suggest looking into Photo Multiplier Tubes and particle detection. These are desktop sized projects that can be used for some core science observations of our world, space around us and put things into perspective.
