The expert in 184 is head of lab relating to aerosols. That’s what they do.
I’ll add my two cents to #184 because I previously seen something.
When Z earlier told me about the subtilis a quick google revealed Ivins’ connection to it, eg,
“Immunization against anthrax with aromatic compound-dependent (Aro-) mutants of Bacillus anthracis and with recombinant strains of Bacillus subtilis that produce anthrax protective antigen.
B E Ivins, S L Welkos, G B Knudson, and S F Little”
So Ivins did do research with the germ.
Also, I find it hard to imagine that the floaty powder could not have been inserted in the letter in a way to minimize the floating out at time of insertion, Also, I guess I don’t know what “wet” anthrax is, but a solvent is a liquid and I find it hard to imagine it would not have left some kind of mark/stain/abrasion on the envelope.
Z, your link coming soon.
“From Frederick, MD to Princeton, NJ — 195 miles, 3:29 travel time (Mapquest). Inclusive of doing the deed, figure 8 hours round trip.
Wonder why he’d do the overnight run rather than do it on the weekend...”
This is a posting from Okie01 on another thread. I thought to repeat it hear because it’s a really good point. Why would Ivins not wait for the weekend for his sojourn to New Jersey?
