An explosion occurred at 6:52pm yesterday at Periapsis’ Stockholm Research Facility. Two were killed in the blast, Dr. Edgar Islington (42) and his research assistant Clyde Moreau (26), and many more injured.
According to Periapsis’ official statement, the explosion was caused by a test run of Islington’s latest machine, supposedly some sort of experimental renewable energy device, though details were not provided.
We will definitely not be pursuing [Edgar’s] work any further
The facility will be closed for the foreseeable future, until the extensive damage is repaired.
“We will definitely not be pursuing [Edgar’s] work any further… it was a crackpot theory to begin with.” comments Jonas Wahlström (55), a colleague of Islington’s, injured in the blast.
Islington’s wife, Isadora, was unavailable for comment.
