So here's the deal. I've got a thing made out of some unknown substance that has negative inertial mass. I've got a few specific questions:
1. Should this object even stay together, or should its particles fly apart and turn the whole thing into some kind of atomic vapor? I was thinking that since individual atoms and such are in static equilibrium in real life, inverting the acceleration imparted by IMFs and Electromagnetism would keep it that way - different forces would just switch roles.
2. Bigger one I can't just handwave away. My containment procedures involve buoyancy - and I'm working under the assumption that the surrounding fluid would still push up on the object even when gravity wasn't pulling it down. If that's not true, I'm gonna have to rewrite containment procedures, and I'd rather not look stupid by putting some nonworking procedures on the mainlist.
Also obviously tell me anything else I broke, besides the fact that negative mass exists in the first place. Thanks in advance!
