Also another important point: the tin foil in 1969 was a lot thicker than this thin crap we have today! Hell, you could damn near make a barbeque pit out of that stuff alone.

Due to current economic conditions the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.

'That would break down to a lethal dose in about 2-3 months of constant exposure.'

Well, hell then. That would not be a problem in a moon landing then...

You also have to take into consideration the varying strength of solar radiation, measured in electron volts. The radiation can be very high but the charge on the particles is very low. There are some shuttle missions that go up to 200 miles up, into the lower part of the inner belt.

Well, my take on Rorke and this research is - they have reasonable questions they would like answers to. No reason to get all up in arms about that, is there?

There should be an easy rebuttal to the radiation issue then. Wonder what kind of records exist, or could be reconstructed - to trace the trajectoy of these space missions - and come up with a good estimate of the radiation levels involved.

Is there a clue to Art's take on this guest in this bumper music?

Heh

Well, then. Ask a question. Get an immediate answer. 'NO'.

Some sort of comprehensive unmanned probe operation could settle the matter. I don't know if it's been done though.
