You have worked hard and it shows.
And strange isn't it how some discoveries just wait to be noticed. Sometimes they are so obvious but its grand to find them finally. especially after they have been set aside as a "mission failure"
Sort of reminds me of the story that I think arc told ... about Watson and Holmes ... sleuths that they were... out camping under the stars. All the complicated explainations about the stars in the sky ended with this
"Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke.
"Watson, you idiot. Some jerk has stolen our tent.”
Reminds me of a Captain Watson I knew once. After sliding in sideways, filled with smoke and bullet holes. The report said that the plane crashed and burned because the landing gear wasn't down properly. Right.
The truth eventually finds its way to the surface, and you Andrew have deserved to be there. Maybe those lab notes were just waiting for the proper time for their story to be recognized. Dr. Brown would be proud of you.

Thank you for encouraging Andrew; I know it means a lot to him. Yes he deserves to be here.
I am looking forward to see how far we can take Qualight Superconductors!
I guess your comment about Watson was a point for us to take: ~THINGS ARE NEVER AS THEY SEEM ~
Did you know him before he was a Captain then? As Sub-Lieutenant Ian "Soapy" Watson at the time of that "incident"? It's been, what, twenty or twenty-five years? So WAS it a NATO "exercise"? I guess not, with "camouflaged" bullet holes.
Unnecessary punishment doled out by the Royal Navy brass AND it wasn't a mission failure?? Hmmmm.... I wonder what happened to his disappearing flight leader (and who was his flight leader?)..... WHY did he take the punishment if he knew that it wasn't a mission failure?
