#3822: Bet on it being space junk, not "a small stone from the universe".

Unless your definition of "small stone" includes, y'know, jetsam from rocket launches. Yes, it's good that the "small stone from the universe" didn't hit the ISS Boondoggle's hull, but the thing has a layered construction with lots of kevlar and other energy-absorbing materials.

Antihydrogen might just fall up. Antimatter ought to exhibit anti-gravity, considering that it behaves like time-reversed normal matter, but no one really knows...yet.
Using data they had already obtained, the ALPHA team determined they didn't yet have enough data to rule out antigravity or strange behavior in antimatter.
Woohoo!

For the first time this year, I have fans pulling air into the bunker. It got rather warm today; and it looks as if it's going to be about the same tomorrow, which is the first day of May.

Well, that's fine. Maybe tomorrow I won't be too sick to ride my motorcycle....
