Not a problem. I would most likely get into trouble with it, doing 
something entirely foolish like making huge front surface mirrors for 
"mysterious" purposes. Deer spotting airliners anyone? Any spare tanks 
of N2 around the lab your not using I will take off your hands. Cryonics 
is an interesting subject even if you are just planning to use the N2 to 
clean pesky insects out of the shop. umm.. Giant Dewer flask needed, 
perhaps ebay.

I really need to find a real reason to have toys like that around. I 
know a giant scanning electron microscope. How big was that old vacuum 
chamber again? Ever burn a hole in a grasshopper with an electron 
microscope? I was surprised to find titanium in the sample I tested 
years ago.

How goes the rocket science these days Brian?

Keep 'em Flying
