<< Thats primarily my concern. Anyone who calls themselves a scientist
should have the integrity to acknowledge that a) the chances of it
hitting earth were infinitesimal, b) if they did hit earth, they were
designed to survive reentry and impact intact without leakage. His tv
lobbying over that issue was disgusting and dishonest >>
He was dishonest IF he could see beyond his own personal prejudices which
usually blind a person (all of us) into thinking beyond the current paradigm.
If he really knew better (had confidence in the reentry shielding
engineering) he might've given thought to changing his mind. Similarly, a lot
of the best scientists had a prejudice in Favor of uranium 235,BWR style
power plants, before the practical testing and evaluation had been performed.
Again its a matter of people discovering the truth and deciding what is
