Zaphod, I've been going through your comments and they're pretty good for the most part. The problem with the "uncommanded elevon deployment"
that you talk about is the fact that the flight control computers are quadruple-redundant. You'd have to have multiple commands from the computers
telling the elevon to move before it would happen, and those things have a very high sampling rate compared to the positioning of the flight controls.
My experience, including several years flying the B-2, says there's probably something else to blame here, most likely not anybody's fault. The
safety record has been phenomenal, and sometimes bad things happen. I don't think this was anyone's fault. And nothing "spooky" caused this to
