And presented in Dave's unique non-scripted overly enthusiastic style!
Dave unboxes a random bit of gear from ebay. What is it?

hi dave !
you may want a get this from ebay for a next teardown : http://www.ebay.com/itm/NASA-ARTIFACT-VPI-Vehicle-Power-Interface-Rack-Console-Hubble-Space-Telescope-/261090432601
i’d buy it myself to convert it into a fancy coffe machine but i don’t have enough room in my kitchen!
“if the fundamental constants change” LOL
well actulay some did change a (litle) bit.
Wenn the BIMP change a defenition of a SI unit , then this can result in a “change” of a constant
Some constants may not be constants at all.
Some are – like the speed of light in a vacuum, but that’s by definition of the unit. A second also is constant because it’s fixed by the number of transitions between hyperfine states of Cs.
Other constants aren’t so static – some of them have changed, and it’s likely others may change – what see as “constant” is merely “slowly changing”.
If it can be used as I think it can you can use it for spectroscopy or gamma ray spectroscopy. Pretty nice find!
Though if you say it’s only got discrete signal inputs then I withdraw my comment
This looks like it would be perfect for creating the famous double slit experiment.
This box seems full of surprising gears!
