Well, there's your problem, BobC... you spent your luck budget on the radish gear!

Seriously, thanks for sharing. Yours is one of the most fascinating posts I've read recently. What a heart-breaker of an ending. I do encourage you to reach out to SpaceX and Blue Origin. I have to think that, what with plans for LEO microsat constellations, there can't be too much research right now into the effects of radiation on COTS gear.
