Vrijland Latest change 2017-09-28
Vrijland (litt: Free Land) is the compound where the Dutch
housed. The Hackerspace rents two stories in the building seen on
the heading of the website. Slightly visible there, to the far
left, is a chapel
which is currently in use for weddings, conferences,
parties, etc. It is there where I installed a Foucault Pendulum.
can find it on Google Earth coordinates 52 deg 02'14.21"N, 5 deg
The pendulum has operated here for a few days and was showed to
the public during the Hack42
Open Day at october 8, 2017, the "Weekend of Science" when many
institutions open their doors for the public.
In the end of 2019 the message came that
Hack42 has to move to another location in 2020. So there will be
no further attempts to install a pendulum here.
Building the setup in the back of the chapel. The Top Mount is
the balcony at approximately 5.5 meter high. In future it should
mounted to a raft of the roof, some 4 meters higher. I'll do that
when I am very sure that it needs no attention for at least a
because it is a hard to access location. With the experience of
cable this will be postponed to next year.
