[ FUNDING EXTENSION REPORT SUBMITTED TO BLACKFORD & DESAI ECOLOGY // LOC: BLACKFORD & DESAI PRIMARY LINKED SERVER // CLASSIFICATION LEVEL: 3B ]
PROJECT NAME: Vel
PROJECT LEADER: Faraday
REPORT IDENTIFICATION NUMBER: 620-87 #0024
Initial findings based on a GPR scan indicated a depth of roughly 1.8 kilometers below the site’s surface level, from which project funding and timeline estimates were calculated. However, GPR did not take into consideration the unusual spread of material density around the core—a factor which has significantly altered our estimates for the means needed to reach it. Outlined below are two partnered proposals: one for a potential timeline extension, including necessary funding to continue excavation measures over a longer period of times; and one for a potential materials upgrade, based on research out of Blackford & Desai Project P278-33, incomplete experimental mining test, which pioneered the use of stasis-field controlled small-scale detonations for the fast and safe removal of rare metals on Novitze. The second proposal would require all leftover equipment from P278-33 be appropriated for use on Vel, to allow the project to accelerate excavation and meet our initial estimates for both project timeline and funding requirements.
This week, on Tango Sector: At the behest of the Wrecking Crew, the crew of Pelagian heads to the planet Verity to locate and infiltrate a top-secret Blackford & Desai lab hidden somewhere amidst the dark, icy landscape. Kala’ax and Melas make suggestions. Liam and Flux go to the bar. Cash assumes a new identity.
