Riley does a multispectral scan and indeed this ghost matter shows up as an absence in infrared while simultaneously emitting ultraviolet light. The substance whatever it is moves about as if it was a gas except that it doesn't spread. "Fascinating. Do you know where it comes from?"

"If the science types know, nobody's told me. Supposedly it's slowly dissipating but if so it's taking it's sweet time."

"Yep." Slate continues walking. They pass a signpost that says 'Zero-G Cave'. Her maps show that it corresponds to the surface entrance to the mine shaft that goes all the way to the hollow core of the planet.

A short time later, they reach the Observatory. The telescope mounted atop it isn't much compared to the massive orbital arrays back home but it's still quite large compared to the scale of the village and the level of apparent technology.

"Here's our Observatory and Museum." They lead the way into the entrance hall. To the left there's a photo of several Hearthians some of whom are in spacesuits. To the right there's a photo which appears to be of the surface of another body. Up ahead there's a statue of some other species.

"A Nomai, supposedly. Matches the skeletons we've found anyway. Gabbro found it on one of the islands on Giant's Deep."
