We randomly met some cool physics grad student who was making a crazily accurate clock.
This is the door to his lab- invisible lasers . . .
This is the spot where he freezes his Ions Bose Einstien Condensate Style until then tunes the laser to their frequency (bascially their color) and ramps it up in the standard atomic clock style for great accuracy and fun!
So in the MIT campus center there was a random guy that just came and sat down with a bucket of electronic gadgets. After speaking to the guy for like 10 mins we found out it was for some class where they use it- but when his buddies came by he didn't introduce us or anything- loosing even more points for MIT sociability.
