      Hi Liz, thanks for stopping by the blog! The ways in which geometry is being incorporated into daily consumer life is fascinating. It’s always there, but now getting “productized”…And how exciting to visit the mountain top observatory from the southern hemisphere! I so look forward to hearing all about it~ xo
