Addenfum 1: I just spent the better part of two hours reading NASA pdfs on EVA suits and trying to extrapolate from those reports a reasonably advanced EVA suit for the year 2251. My brain is fried and I've only written 253 words so far today. I need to hire a researcher to do this sort of dren for me. I could give him or her a big stack of questions each night and, the next day, I could consult as necessary. Instead, I slog forward. It's difficult to keep mood and tone going, and to keep the narrative flow on tract, when one constantly has to fact check and make calculations and google this or that (yes, I just verbed "google," making me part of the problem).
