Does anyone on Team-Ada work for NASA, either directly or as a contractor? More specifically, does anyone know anything about two Mars probes, the Mars Climate Orbiter (MCO) and the Mars Polar Lander (MPL), built for NASA by Lockheed Martin, with some work being done by JPL? I'm asking because I'm getting ready to flame anyone involved with those programs, and I want to know, ahead of time, who's toes I might be stepping on. sro S.
