I assumed they tried stuff like this and it didn't work. They mentioned sending in animals and drones so it stands to reason they tried simple things. But given how the laws of physics on upwards don't seem to comply anymore in the shimmer No doubt whatever they tried didn't work still. Drones with simple instructions still don't come back, wires fail to transmit anything and whoever went in to trail one doesn't come back etc.

I wondered this too. They could have probably done with an explanation as to why they couldn't, like perhaps the whole lake (if it was a lake and not the ocean) being inside the shimmer.
OA Wish list:
  1. DNI
  2. Internal medical system
  3. A dormbot, because domestic chores suck!
