Nope. Like I said, the full account is not there - although you might find it within some book-searches, like Google's. Think I first saw it mentioned in BK Ridley's 'Time, Space & Things' - http://www.amazon.com/Time-Space-Things-Canto-Ridley/dp/0521484863 however, you'll probably have to get hold of the earlier (1976?) edition - have checked the (slimmer) modern edition and it's missing, along with a few other things.
