Steady Vacuum!

Today Sophia, Kiana, and Brett installed the electrode, tightened EVERY SINGLE BOLT, and removed the mass spec sensor. We managed to maintain a 5e-10 Torr vacuum with very little (but not zero) loss. (Is it normal to slowly lose some vacuum in a system like this?) In any case, it seems that we're ready for the next steps: power and gas.
