I feel I've waited as long as I can... even if I get the link I won't have enough time to write an argument in response.

Extend all my arguments.

To all judges- vote neg on this specific debate

I had a computer malfunction, which gave my opponent a faulty link and then prevented me from giving a correct link. It is not his fault. I apologize deeply to my opponent for an incomplete debate, and again due to unfortunate circumstances vote neg

CP is dis-positional: If you perm or run theory on it I reserve the right to kick it.

I do claim a net-benefit to the NASA DA since it won't be them funding it. The Air Power DA merely has a lower probability of happening since the funding for the CP would be split among countries.

Reasons for voting decision: Forfeit, but it was still interesting. I wonder if He-3 mining might actually be acted on. It seems pretty good even in light of alternatives.
