  1. Two things came to mind listening to this episode.

    Years ago a guy I worked with, Matthew, would say ” Jim can we go straight to plan B – we never use plan A !

    I don’t know if the second thing is fact or fiction – either way it makes the point – Simplify.
    I has been said that preparing for working in the space station the USA spent a huge sum of money developing a pen that would write at any angle in zero gravity.
    The Russians took a pencil !

    Thanks for another stimulating episode.
    Take good care,
