Review: 2018.508 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Ana finds the remains of John Jay Jordan, Jr. plus evidence of an alien civilization.

Con: Hard to believe a child finds the body so easily when experts have had months to look.
Also, in the 1/6 gravity of the moon, I’d expect a disabled person to have a much easier time getting around. The notion that able-bodied people would need crutches in lower gravity makes no sense.
