Bohr (crater)

Bohr is a lunar crater that is located near the western lunar limb, in the area that is affected by librations. It is attached to the southwestern rim of the larger, eroded Vasco da Gama formation, and to the southeast of the crater Einstein.

The rim of Bohr is worn and eroded, and a pair of small, bowl-shaped craters lies across the western rim. The rim to the northeast has been shored up by the adjacent Vasco da Gama, but the remainder forms an irregular ring of rugged ground. To the southwest of Bohr is Vallis Bohr, a valley trending in a north-south direction. This long cleft is most likely associated with the formation of the Mare Orientale farther to the south.

The Bohr Maker was illegal under the law, not only because of its status as a volitional intelligence, but because its activities compelled the corruption of human physiology.

His one claim to fame is that he dissected the neural tissue from Leander's toasted corpse and isolated the Bohr Maker.

He'd tried to steal the Bohr Maker on his own, for himself, without Nikko's knowledge.

But in truth he'd come only because Van Ness had access to the Bohr Makerand a reputation that whispered of his vulnerabilities.

It hadn't been long before the conversation rolled around to Leander Bohr.

He bragged about how he'd collected the charred tissue of Leander's brain and, from it, decoded the basic structure of Bohr's Maker.

This human-ordinary ghost had visited Van Ness many times at his residence in Southwest Australia, and eventually Van Ness had made the suggestion: I could open the Bohr file.

Van Ness had intended to inoculate himself with the Makerthat's what he'd told Nikkojust as Leander Bohr had done long ago with the Maker's original incarnation.
