My son Rudi came along for a mooch about and I got him to make himself useful and collect some ZEB data in the NHM main hall. He did a great job.

The sketchfab models are pretty nifty too (as always).
We had a lot of visitors to the stand - Shaun and I literally didn't stop talking from 6-9:30. Not *that* unusual for me, but definitely for Shaun! We had lots of great discussions and questions from visitors and I really enjoyed it (which is the main thing). The event seemed really successful, with about 3500 visitors on the night, and capped with Shaun's win at the award dinner on the following Monday.
And meanwhile, congratulations to the NASA GEDI team - successfully launched to the ISS on 5/12/18 - let the lasering of forests commence! Great news.
