Беккер знал лишь, что немец был с рыжеволосой спутницей, а в Испании это само по себе большая редкость. Клушар вспомнил, что ее звали Капля Росы. Беккер скорчил гримасу: что это за имя.
В Севилье Беккер лихорадочно обдумывал происходящее. Как они называют эти изотопы - U235 и U?. Он тяжко вздохнул: какое все это имеет значение. Он профессор лингвистики, а не физики. - Атакующие линии готовятся к подтверждению доступа.
