Your Writer: Jon Kilgannon As you can tell from Mark's clever artwork, Benjamin isn't sure what to think of his new partner. The Vorstellen Police are tasked with tracking down rogue mad scientists throughout the Solar System, and Benjamin is starting to suspect that the group mind of Mars may be the biggest mad scientist of them all.

P.S. Happy Independence Day to our American readers. Happy Thursday to everyone else!

Your Artist: Mark Sachs So why are Benjamin and Caprice floating through the air? Fair question. Gather round, children.

As everyone knows, there's no gravity when you're freefalling through space. Traditionally designed space stations such as Feynman Station avoid this little inconvenience by rotating on their axis to create the illusion of gravity through centrifugal force -- you know how your body is pressed against the door of a car when it turns sharply? Same deal. However, it becomes awfully difficult to dock spaceships with a station that's spinning like a top, so naturally there has to be a non-rotating section for the ships to dock at. And that's where Benjamin and Caprice are, and that's why they're floating through the air.

"Thank you, Dr. Science."

(Well, okay, that's why Benjamin is floating through the air. Caprice is floating simply because she's very light on her feet.)
