Make sure your plan is in the format of "the USFG should do x".
Your 2ac should be hard numbered and follow the structure of a we meet, counterinterp, etc. One of each of the 5 types of answers please!
Good job explaining why telescope needs infrastructure, etc to prove you meet the counterinterp, but the exact science is obviously unnecessary.
Also the reasons why the telescope are good are not relevent to a topicality debate.
You are assigned to give this 2ac over tonight during speech redos.

2AC:
Great job hard numbering, but be sure your numbers are accurate – the cards and analytical arguments are both numbered, but I don’t think you numbered the cards. Good argument that the alternative fails.
2NC:
Be sure to signpost which 2AC arguments you are answering. Good analysis of how we can focus on things other than security. You did a good job of making a basic answer to each 2AC argument, but you should work on adding more detail and analysis. Look at your flow from the debate today for examples.

Debating on: Round 3
Instructor/commentator: Katie
Comments:
You should flow during the 1NC
You need to take debate rounds more seriously – you and Adam seem to treat these rounds as a joke, which is honestly kind of a waste of time for all involved. You demonstrated apathy and disrespect towards your teammates and opponents.
