While NASA is famed for the occasional convoluted acronym, the camera team came up with its own prize winner: DARKNESS, which stands for “DARK-speckle Near-infrared Energy-resolved Superconducting Spectrophotometer.”
The DARKNESS camera can take thousands of images per second without the “read noise” and other factors that affect more traditional cameras. It also can determine the wavelength and arrival time of every photon striking its detector.
OK, that's cool. But I have a question. Why does this "new" camera look sort of weather beaten in the pic?
First line was "beingdeveloped" - implying what you're looking at is still under construction. Sheet metal, for example, often comes with text on it when shipped from the mill. That would, for example, explain the dirt-like marks on the top.
I'm sure they'll spray paint it or something when it's done.
Usually they gold leaf space stuff for the radiation protection. The leaf is so thin just touch it and it'll peel off onto your finger no matter how well you wash. Gloves wont help either so thin just a little rub and it'll tear the leaf.
(Those little blobs are only a few micrograms, scientists wont get rich scraping gold leaf off their finger tips even after a lifetime's worth.)
Signature ready for installation. Please Reboot now.

Use an artist's paint brush, rub on face to build up a little static, pick up the leaf and "paint it on". So simple even an old fool could do it... oh wait.. I don't have any. Traded all mine for bitcoins.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
I'm basically putting together a new guitar with an old body.
I got a combination of Seymour Duncan Hot Rails and Cool Rails and now I'm figuring out the potentiometers. (1 of them has to be push/pull ).
The wiring scheme says 250 Ohm, so I got that (though I don't know what the difference 250 vs 500 actually does), but there is also a difference between a logarithmic ("audio") and a linear potentiometer. I read you should use the logarithmic ones since they don't "cut-off" at the end. Is that both for volume and tone (I need 1 volume and 2 tones) ?
Any other advice I should take in account for the potentiometers, eg how do you know what knobs will fit on those meters?
Any advice on the switch itself (5 way switch)?
