Buckyball By E. S. Strout

Interesting story. I liked the ethnic diversity in the characters, but they needed some more personality; I got a feeling for it, but given the very plot driven nature of the tale, it was overshadowed. The ending was trying to go for that dark ' Beyond Outer Limits' twist, but it felt a little rushed (that's the best way I can describe it).

A few things though

1) Did they go to the actual edge of the Universe? :shock: Or was this just a metephor for being on the edge of a black hole?

2) You first introduced Gorman as a member of the Navy, but then had him be a Marine, which is it?

Gorman is a Navy Commander, Hernandez a Marine Corps officer. Syntax error by a misplaced period. My bad.

There is conjecture regarding the existence of an antimatter universe. One says that at the Big Bang singularity equal amounts of matter and antimatter were created.. We exist in a matter universe. If we were capable of puncturing the expanding rim of our universe would we enter an antimatter universe and be destroyed? And why not an antimatter component in black hole?
