Industry Insight: Crisis on Asimov
"Bonjour, Dr. Chadwick. May I invite you to attend the 84th Annual Earth Environmental Conference for Senior Leadership and present a paper on your work studying the 'greenhouse effect' on Venus and other places?"
The holomessage was in front of her, and a familiar face was asking the question. It was the chairman of her doctoral committee from Princeton.
"Dr. Saint-Germain. How nice to see you. Of course, I would be delighted to," said Yoshiko to her former professor.
"Will you be there?" she asked.
"Yes, Yoshiko, and the committee felt your proposal was outstanding. We are very eager to hear what you have to say. Remember, it will be at the new Paris Hilton. Do you think that IBM will permit you to share your results on the environmental impact study of drivable PTVs on Asimov?"
"Oh, sir, I doubt it. IBM must be very careful about the situation on Asimov. I am not even at liberty to discuss it with you," she answered.
"I understand, Yoshiko. Why don't you bring Benson along with you? We would love to see you, both."
"I'll ask him. One way or another, I'll be there."
"See you soon, then," he said. "Au revoir."
When Yoshiko Einstein Chadwick received her Ph.D. from Princeton University in environmental science, she had a curious minor. She was always interested in the planetary warming which occurred with the "greenhouse effect" on planets, like Earth and Venus, so she minored in Venusian Science, since the "greenhouse effect" was so prominent on Venus and it might provide hints to save the Earth from such a terrible fate.Now or return to Top or visit the Archives
