R Garwin on Vela Incident, 2019

In this November 2019 paper, Richard Garwin discusses his time on the Ruina Panel, which investigated the 1979 Vela Incident.

I’ll write more about it later, but this line jumped out at me:

Only a subset of the Ruina Panel had extensive clearances for SCI– specifically,
technology and data from intelligence satellites.

I’m not sure I ever knew that.
