Dr. Jan Cho, PhD. received fifteen million dollars from a corporation to research the realms of Sub-Space. Within a month of starting the research project, however, Dr. Cho disappeared without a trace. If you were able to find him, you might find your reward to be very satisfying.

A Scientific Research Journal

This small journal belonged to Dr. Cho, a physics researcher who got trapped inside his own particle accelerator. The handwriting that fills the pages is neat and concise. You might be able to 'read journal' or even 'read <page number>'.
There are 15 pages in the journal.

The funding for this project was approved today. Fifteen million dollars, and all of it to support this project. If I succeed, my name will be etched forever in physics manuals, textbooks, and journals. That, and the Corporation will stand to make fifty million dollars or so. I have already sent checks to all of my equipment suppliers, everything should arrive in the next week or so.

Today I began. The only piece of equipment that has not arrived yet is the second Van de Graaf accelerator, but there is a lot of work to be done before it arrives. Thus far I have the primary accelerator constructed. I will begin to lay out the alignment equipment tomorrow.
Cho

The primary accelerator is built, and remains untested. I began alignment of the steel tubes that would carry the ion beam today, but was unable to finish. There is always tomorrow.
Cho

Today I finished installing the steel pipes for the primary accelerator. Several of the electro-magnets are installed as well, but it seems as though there will always be more work to do. I am still waiting on the secondary accelerator to arrive, the company I bought it from has yet to return my phone calls. I almost regret sending the five million dollar check to them before delivery.
Cho

Everything is set to go. Well, except for the secondary accelerator. DAMMIT! Tomorrow I will fire up the primary accelerator and see how it runs.
Cho

page 6
2/28/95
Yes! The primary accelerator is running perfectly. To be specific, the vacuum pumps are running at 98% efficiency, and the ion control is putting out a 92% pure beam. These are well within my defined par values. Now all I lack is the secondary accelerator...
Cho

ARGH! The secondary accelerator arrived today, except they sent the WRONG one. Isn't it strange how I order (and pay for) a 10 million volt model and they send me a 2.5 million volt model? Needless to say, I was forced to return it and wait even longer.
Cho

Not much to report. The primary accelerator is running smoothly, and the beam is up to 95% purity. I grow tired of this waiting game...
Cho

99% purity. I have achieved a new record, but I still wish to finish this record-breaking project. If I succeed in linking the two accelerators together to 'bounce' the beam back and forth between them, charging the particles to 100 million micro-volts each, then I will be able to fire the beam at a brick of titanium-steel and melt through it in seconds, using nothing more than the 220 volts of alternating current supplied to me by the power company...
Cho

I will wait no longer. Tomorrow I will attempt to reverse the primary accelerator even though I don't have the secondary device to push the beam into it. Hopefully I will be able to use a magnetic mirror to bounce the beam back and forth...
Cho

Sigh. The beam did exactly what I wanted it to do, but the magnets that were bouncing the beam back into the accelerator failed, and for some strange reason sucked half of the laboratory into the accelerator. I am in the accelerator! How this could happen, I do not know, there are too many laws (or supposed laws) of physics that prove this cannot happen! I'm tired, when I wake up I'll try to find my way out of here.
Cho

It has been one month since I was trapped in the accelerator. It would almost seem that the molecules and such that are in here are semi-intelligent, especially since none of them will let me get near the ion beam. Maybe I can study them while I am here hoping to find a way out.
Cho

page 13
9/5/95
Six months, and nothing. The molecules and atoms still seem semi-intelligent, but they don't seem to interact on a human scale. All they do is float around, exchange some particles here and there, oh yeah, and keep me away from the ion beam.
Cho

One year. Although I have had plenty of time for meditation and studying the atoms here, I am more than ready to go home. I give up physics research, if I ever get out of here I'm gonna go teach high school.

Two years. I am giving up hope...
