The Transcript For This Page
The trio approach a section in the wall where doors have slid open to reveal a row of five high-backed seats, facing to the right.
Buford: So how does t'is tube t'ing work?
Nicole: A combination of magnetics and pneumatics. We board this capsule, and air gets pumped out of the section of tube in front of us ...
The trio strap themselves into the rear three of the five seats. It's a tight fit for Buford.
Nicole: ... while magnetic accelerators move us forward at high-grav.
Nicole: Most of the tube is vacuum, so there's little friction along the mag-lev track. We coast most of the way to the other end.
The girls, seated, brace for departure.
Buford: Oh, t'ey haf somet'ing like t'at between t'e domed cities on Luna.
Buford: I never rode on 'em, t'ough.
Buford: How fast do t'ey accelerate?
As the capsule leaps forward, the high-acceleration pushes the girls back into their seats.
Nicole: Oh, nudding doo exdweme.
