As you've probably heard (or seen for yourselves), Ary's on Improbable Island. As I can't find a single account of someone returning from the show, I think we can safely disband this PhD committee. And though she seems to have abandoned her attempts to come back, I'd like to keep you on tap in case she does make it home.
I've heard that there's a department betting pool about her chances on the show. Though there's probably no way to avoid that sort of thing, I hope you're all betting on her survival. We've trained her and worked with her out in the field; you should know how well she adapts. And she's had chances out there we can only dream of - did you see the moment when she held a tiny dinosaur?
She's continuing to explore and discover things even out there. We should all be proud of her.
P.S. Patrick, since you're apparently in charge of the pool, I have two cigs that say she won't bother to get a helmet before seeking out the Drive.
Looks promising, but I can't seem to contact her. Who's next on the list? - Ed
