Aden tries to help Lesi with what she is doing.

Ovali is distracted by a display on how a spaceship is sent to space.

Great! With two people they can try stuff with harmony! Another sensor makes sounds that are higher than hers makes, she passes that one to Aden. Music~!

After a bit more fiddling, Mika glances up at Seni, "Could you take that station over there?" He points to the one just to the right of the opposite side of the table, "This station's only making wind come from over here, and I think it needs to come from other places, too, so it'll spin the clouds."

Anekasi stops a small distance away from Ovali to read the display as well. 

Permalink

Does Kasi want to play with the interactive part of the display that simulates a rocket being thrown into orbit?

Permalink

Seni will take position and fiddle the controls carefully.

Permalink

...Sure. He steps up next to Ovali, glancing at him out of the corner of his eye, and presses the button to start the interactive bit.

Through their efforts, the clouds begin to spin, and with a few more adjustments the storm begins to form an eye. 

"It's a hurricane!" He bounces around to Seni's station, peering at the storm from a bunch of different angles, and then pushing himself up so he can get a good look from above. 

Permalink

"It is. I wonder if we can make one stop once it's going?" Seni says, also pushing himself up a bit.

Then Ovali and Kasi can play with simulated gravitational forces to guide the tiny ship up towards its destination! The first attempt ends with it lost to the void of space.

Permalink

"Hmmm..." he looks down at the buttons at this station. "I had to heat up the water underneath it to make it form... maybe if we cooled it down?"

Permalink

Kasi frowns, trying to figure out what they'd done wrong. "Let's try again?" 

Permalink

"Sure. Wanna switch places?"

Permalink

"...Okay." Maybe they'll be better at the opposite ones. 

Permalink

Seni tries that at his station, watching carefully for the results.

Permalink

It takes a bit, but the simulation is sped up quite a lot, so they get to watch as the hurricane slowly dies in response to the cooling water. 

"Cool! Wonder if we can do that in real life?" 

Permalink

And they try again, Kasi paying more attention this time so he can hopefully catch any mistakes they make.

Permalink

It takes three revolutions across the solar system, but they eventually get the ship to its destination safely, and manage to shave the time in the next try.

Permalink

"It would be neat. We could stop hurricanes before they hit shore."

Permalink

Kasi gives Ovali a small satisfied smile after the third try, "I wonder what the fastest time you can get on this is?" 

Permalink

"Yeah... it'd be pretty hard to cool down the ocean like that, I think, but there's gotta be ways to do it..." He hums, thinking about it.

Permalink

"I guess if you could do with technology they would have done it."
