Ice Rink Time-lapse

This is a time-lapse video of the Don Roberts ice rink going from the final stages of the 2008 Nobel Conference to the newly repaired ice rink. Earlier this year the cooling system failed and had to be replaced. In this video you can see the removal of the old cooling system followed by the installation of the new cooling system. If you ever wanted to see what is down there below the ice, here is your chance.

The video was created by taking a photo every minute from October 9th through November 30th and stitching them together. To try and shorten the video I removed most of the images where not much was happening such as each night and some of the weekends.
