I talked at length about that, in 2003, with Dr Roger Leir, who
was involved in that study, and knew Dr VernonClark.

Leir told me that he was forced to quit his post at the UCLA at
San Diego, and had a hard time finding another job.

If I remember well, his marriage was broken too, after that.
Skeptics will as usual put in doubt this information, but I
don't care.

Now, that does not prove anything about the real nature of that
fragment, of course
