Li, Nigel, Buford, Nicole and Murphy are standing in a metal-walled room. They are all wearing jumpsuits. Li is next to a console with his hand near a control interface.
Li: Our target is on Terra, which has a surface gravity of 9.8 gravs.*
Li: This building has adjustable electro-gravity, which can simulate Terran gravity …
Caption: *1 grav = 1 meter/sec/sec
Li touches the controls, and his knees bend slightly. Nigel and Buford fall onto their knuckles, Nicole staggers slightly. Only Murphy seems unaffected.
Li: … thusly.
Nicole: Feek! I thought Venus was bad!
Li holds up an ordinary chicken's egg.
Li: Not only will you feel four or five times heavier than you're used to, things fall faster, with sometimes dramatic results.
Li: Allow me to demonstrate ...
Li drops the egg on the floor, where it goes splat. Nigel, Buford and Nicole are wide-eyed. Murphy remains unperturbed.
Buford: Holy shuck!
