Well, I'm going to have to disagree about the "has merit" part. I don't think such a (needlessly?) elaborate ruse has ever happened in the history of forgeries. It's just a trope of fiction. (And I'm...

True. I don't think they have a mass for it yet (?) so this should be diameter estimated from brightness. Maybe they didn't think the readers would understand diameter. ;) It's hard to say what's the...

Bad Genyus. No biscuit for you!

Also, don't get into a discussion about how airfoils and wings work. Unless you're willing to just nod and not ask any questions at all, you will regret it.
