Plastic is best for safety and it can be sanded for perfect fit.1-1 1/4" diameter clear disk1-1 1/2" diameter cabochon1-small tube of clear glueI got these pieces at TAP Plastics tapplastics.com.

Form the mirrors into a triangle (shiny side in) and slide them into the tube. If the fit is too tight, sand the outside edges until they just wedge in and don't move. Make sure you clean them first, because if you can't get them back out, you'll never be able to clean themStep 3: Glue the parts HYPERLINK "http://cdn.instructables.com/FIO/W8I1/FOHU3OBW/FIOW8I1FOHU3OBW.LARGE.jpg"

Using the clear glue (I used Weld-On #16 which is designed for plastic), glue the 1 1/4" disk onto one end of the tube. Use very little glue.Step 4: Glue the cabochon HYPERLINK "http://cdn.instructables.com/FJ6/0EUY/FOHU3OBT/FJ60EUYFOHU3OBT.LARGE.jpg"

Do not depress the raised section on the mechanical splice. 2. Strip approximately 3cm of buffer and/ or coating from the optical fiber using a stripper. 3. Clean the optical fiber by pulling the fiber through a lint- free wipe soaked in optical fiber cleaning fluid. 4. Place the optical fiber in the cleaver, to the length specified by the mechanical splice manufacturer. 5. Cleave the optical fiber. 6.

    The story begins when the rocket has just exploded and the crew is falling through space. They have space suits on, so they can breathe and talk to one another through a radio. They estimate that they have an hour or so to speak to one another before they drift too far apart. Hollis, the main character, is falling towards the Earth, while the Captain is falling towards the moon. They are all scared and Hollis kills one man who starts screaming uncontrollably because they cannot talk to one another on the radio while he screams. As they talk, at first they try to calm each other down, but then some of them become mean. Applegate tries to hurt Hollis by saying that he destroyed his career and Hollis lashes out at Lespere when he reminisces about the fulfilling life he has had. Afterwards, Applegate apologizes to Hollis and Hollis realizes that he has led an empty life. He wishes that he could do something to make up for it by helping someone. When he falls through the Earth‘s atmosphere he burns up like a meteor and a boy in Illinois thinks he is a falling star. His mother tells him to make a wish.…
