Taking time out from both preparations for moving tomorrow
and from work, I'll finally make some replies.
On Tues 3 Jan 2006 Dave Van Domelen replied:

True. I was actually working on the impression given in #61 that NASA
had held off slightly in informing the Academy because of the various
recent political tensions - but rereading that scene I note that it
doesn't actually specify how long. And in any case that wouldn't be
applicable for a NAC organised expedition rather than a delegated
Academy organised one. That said, with both Solar Max and Lightfoot
available, had either the NAC or the Academy felt a pressing need
they could have had a preliminary recon done by now. Or of they
were into taking extremely foolish risks, literally yesterday.

It was vastly amusing, but it didn't have a plot. You should know by
now that the EoMR is basiaclly just a Plot Comprehesion Engine :-)
