My last boss did so repeatedly, with impunity. Remember: 1) The ADA is quite vague. Much is left to interpretation. 2) Companies will hire the occasional person in a wheelchair to fill their PR quota. Actual compliance is a joke. They have more lawyers than we do, and go out of their way to contrive violations by an employee who disrupts mgmt's objectivist one-day workweeks.

This does seem like a small but nontrivial risk. Aside from Charon there are four rocks we can see from here -- who knows else lurks? I should think that the mission team will be taking a long hard squint at every image they can slurp down along the way looking for new dangers, so that the trajectory can be adjusted in time.
