writing, robots

On the subway up to an undisclosed location in the West 70s, I wrote text for my Atlas of Galaxies. At the location, Schiminovich and I discussed next steps in the GALEX Photon Catalog project. We also discussed a proposal that Schiminovich is writing for a balloon-borne instrument that deals with variable conditions by making non-trivial decisions in real time in response to real-time measurements of transparency, sky brightness, and field-of-view (which can be hard to control on balloons). Obviously, a custom-built on-board lightweight implementation of Astrometry.net would be useful!
