Re: Settlement design

This is for SpaceNut .... Noah has not communicated with us since he submitted a paper about his concept for an 8 person expedition.

He might respond to a request from you to see the paper.

As things stand, I am responsible for a misunderstanding of the nature of his work that led him to stop writing.
