Congratulations! I recognize your effort to put tax dollars to work.

You're already facing a bit of a shit storm. So you're aware that by
tapping the funding of a nation state's defense program, you'll
certainly be nominated for this year's  Wernher-von-Braun award!

Not sure if you sold out an international idea to the military of a
single nation or niftily funneled tax money otherwise intended for
evil[tm] into an international, awesome project.

"It's always been the doers, the risk takers, the makers of things".

We'll see how you perform.

Until then, I'll stock up my strategic popcorn supply to have enough
while reading the flame war on this topic.

Best regards, best of luck and call the ethics hotline if unsure,
