When I was first reading that scene, before I even got to the explosion, I stopped to IM Andy and ask, "WHY THE HELL is he not in a spacesuit for this procedure?!"

Turns out the answer was that Andy is a capricious and spiteful creator, and enjoyed Mark's suffering. ;)

He also IM'd to remind me that gaseous Hydrogen would not separate and go to the top of the Hab. It would diffuse in to the air and be omnipresent. I'll have to rewrite that section to keep it scientifically accurate. One of many tidbits on my "to do" list for after I finish the first draft.

I have no idea how Mark's going to get to the MAV. Can't wait!

I concur with all that is/ was said above.

And in the absence of anything original, I'd like to say how sad I am that the ending looms :(

Yikes! Just read part 25 and my damn heart rate jumped 10 or 20 BPM by the end of it. Good job on making it seem real, Andy!

I'll try to be a little quicker on this next chapter. By the way, it'll be the last. :)
