Book 16: Big, Dumb Objects — Part IV


NARRATOR: One negotiation with exactly zero threats later...

MURTAUGH: We have a contract. Gasca's team can get their science on.

CDRE TAGON: We agreed to let you do the talking, but you should have asked about this number.

MURTAUGH: I did. I asked Ennesby to convert it into units that didn't require exponential notation.

ENNESBY: If we use "teracreds" we can get by with just three zeroes.
