November 4, 2009

The following corrections were made to the report:

Table B in the executive summary: the study attributed to HMI (Germany) was corrected to GSI (Germany). For this same study, “proton boost” was corrected to “carbon (ion) boost”. “HMI=Hahn Meitner Institute” in the footnote was corrected to “GSI=Gesellschaft fuer Schwerionenforschung“

The same changes were made in Table 7 on page 29 of the full report.

These corrections do not change the conclusions of the report.
