The test substance continues to defy identification: both chemical and xeno investigations fail to produce meaningful results. Testing continues.

Test 102:

Bromine Test - normal, pH 5s

Test 103:

Acid Amide Test - negative

Test 104:

Ammonia NH3 - negative, unreactive

Test 105:

Hydrochloric Acid Solution - negative for Sulphate, Sulphide and Chlorate Ions

Test 106:

Standard Hallucinogenics - mild intoxicant, tests abandoned due to most test subjects suffering massive internal hemorrhaging within 1 - 2 hours

Test 107:

Positive/Negative Metal Cations - incomplete

Test 108:

Human Hallucinogenics - incomplete
Testing of the gaseous 'fog' has been considerably more successful. It appears to be a harmless blend of Sulphur, Chlorine and Aromatic Amine, which gives it the 'floating' visual effect. Please note that 'harmless', here, is used in the xenochemics sense: it is harmless in so far as we have identified it, and so can take the necessary safety measures. If directly ingested it would, naturally, be lethal.

Test 159:

Potassium Dichromate Paper - positive for Sulphur

Test 161:

Litmus Test - negative for all but Chlorine

Test 301:

Hydrochloric Acid Solution - positive for Aromatic Amine
Work continues on the issue of transporting the substance. So far, removing it from its dormant location causes its base state to radically change, producing massive heat (to the detriment of three workers, one of whom is no longer operational due to his injuries). Following heat dissipation, the substance appears to turn dead, unreactive to every test we have the equipment to run. The prevailing theory is that somehow, the disruption of the material causes it to enter hugely accelerated chemical decay. We estimate its half life to be approximately 0.4 seconds.
