I have been having formatting problems with this text and am sometimes unable to repair it.
Otherwise we are now introduced to a natural parallel with the German side. this makes sense in time and place simply because German science and technical education was completely superior to anyone else.
Again though, we are gaining no technical explanations that are useful and the aerodynamic model is simply plunked down as if it were real. Yet i do have some familiarity with the possibilities and simply think that such is a device is improbable. Yet even then honest efforts were advanced and it is plausible that we had a serious attemt underway on both sides of the Atlantic.
We are introduced to Dieus ex Machina soon enough as we now meet the Venusians.
What makes this interesting is that it does not make much sense to use Venus on the basis of our knowledge from 1975 or today. It was a plausible cover story in 1943, but this was not written in 1943. It really screams of either Inner Earth or Inner Venus or both for that matter and that concept had been utterly rejected by all of science forever. It is only now that my knowledge of Cloud cosmology has shown it to be both possible and truly plausible as well.
