The last statement in the summary is completely uncalled for.

Ned Wright is known to have a pretty sharp wit. Besides, Myhrvold used his notoriety to grandstand with the press before his work was peer-reviewed, basically calling Wright a moron. I would get a little testy too.

Not to mention Spaceport Command and Control System (SCCS) Doh!
