Haven't seen this article plugged here; so your attention is drawn to the
British Interplanetary Society's journal page; @:
http://freespace.virgin.net/british.interplanetary/home.htm. An abstract of
the piece appears in some illegible (@ least on _this_ computer screen_
type)... to get the article itself (.pdf format), you click on Garber's
name. The author is from NASA's history office; but the conclusions he draws
from this sorry episode are rather better than some santitising restatement
of the agency line.

The other article - Brian Marsden on what-went-wrong with the discovery of
1997 XF11 is also worth a look... even if i still think the guy made a
mistake with his announcement....

All the best,

Robert Clements <Robert.Clements@dva.gov.au>
