      I remember thinking that the perspex/glass viewing window was actually unusually thick. Is this an old exhibit and has technology significantly reduced the thickness of the newer viewing window?

      The window is made from a kind of acryl and is "only" 35 cm thick. The window is about 12 years old now, I don't think this is an unusual thickness of such a viewing window.
