Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What do you imagine to be "the Data". Do you have the slightest idea how much there would be, and the enormity of the task of even assembling it?

As for model software, have you ever waded through a significant chunk of code?  Are you going to verify the operating systems they run on as well: if not, why not? How abour the instrumentation in satellites launched 30yr ago? The firmware that controlled them?

And what are the scientists supposed to do for the next 50yr whilst a host of hostile ignoramusses trundles through their work making insistent non-stop demands for detailed explanations and historical trails, while refusing to learn a god-damned thing?

The request is absurd on its face.
