Over the past month, the CARTHE team has worked tirelessly to conduct an elaborate experiment with hundreds of pieces of equipment and nearly as many people. We have overcome challenges, collected millions of data points, and will spend the next year (or more?) analyzing and publishing this data. But one thing you might not realize is just how much fun this group of individuals from across the world had while together in Louisiana!
We cannot share all of the details about the mysterious ceremony that occurred on said porch to recognize the handwork and commitment of everyone involved, spearheaded by our fearless leader, Jeroen the swamp king, orchestrated by the aberrant minds of Conor Smith and Laura Bracken, but here is a glimpse of the dedication this group has for everything they do (Jeroen is wearing a trash bag, moss, mud, rope, and more; Conor may be wearing shoe polish?).
It is evident that these people love what they do and love to share their passion with those around them. When people come together with a common purpose and complete dedication to a project, great things happen and a lot of fun is had!
