I ground thru the same formula and got the same integral, then plugged in numbers and got 6.6e-49 * Gamma / (E * kT_edge^3/2). I'm trying to check the units to make sure this makes sense, but have to pretend to be working for a living :D

(e^2/epsilon)^2 is pretty tiny. But I will double check again in a few hours.

Art,

I still agree with the point that you made and that I also made.

However, I have yet to see anything that convinces me one way or the other. Where I am on the spectrum of interest is: hopeful with doubts. I think you are more on the doubtful with doubts side. Good.

As Rick has pointed out: we do not have enough evidence to make a case one way or the other.
