[Lab] Laser Update

Ok So I've just like to clarify all!
The laser seems to be up and running again. I'm going to do the test on it
today and send out an email by the end of the day confirming this.
We will be moving the laser into the other room some time in the future but
not this week and it will be venting outside through a window, not a wall.
Andrew: that building looks like the one across the street from us, due to
the construction that will be happening soon, we will not be punching any
holes in the walls, as that room will be someone's office in the next
couple of years.
I will get back to you on all this soon.
