Deep San Andreas hole gets its package

Last year, we learned how they had drilled 10,000 feet into the San Andreas to get some rocks (ooooh!). Now, they have installed the instrument package. It's not that I think this is an example of 'Glam-Pork Science Gone Bad', noooo. And it's not that there are better things to spend the money on (they wouldn't get funded by Congress).

Well, maybe it is a little. Still, one would view this project with interest.

Yes, one would, but I think *they* should drill 30,000 feet as a minimum starter, and then just keep going until it's too hot to drill.

"They" - as in "who are They, anyway." Or as Pogo said, "We have met the enemy, and he is us." (Substitute they for he.)

Yes, I think it's just crushed rock at 10,000 ft, and you can get that anywhere!
