Apparently, despite the fact that the government dumped the equipment we’re using, now they want it back. They hadn't considered using it as a commercial venture, and we’ve already shown that there's some real money to make. Fortunately, at this point they haven't actually shut us down. All they've done is force us to let a bunch of scientist go through to the other side to do some real experiments (not like the ones Tom has been doing, but I bet they won’t get invited to any parties). I don’t know what they plan to do, but they took an entire chemistry set, a bunch of wires and batteries, and more sealed cases than I’ve ever seen before.
So far there’s only been one party of almost a dozen squints, but keeping it open long enough to get all of them, and their equipment, through the Door drained our stored power to the point where we won’t be able to open it again for another two weeks, so we’ll just have to wait until then to find out what they’ve discovered (if they share any info with us). At least we don’t need to worry about being sued; since they’re all military scientists, it’s not our problem if they don’t survive. (Of course that doesn’t mean we aren’t concerned.)
We’re continuing to upgrade and stabilize the Door, and we’ll tell you more about it next week.
