Did I mention that Jovia orbits Jupiter? If I didn't, I'm sorry - at this point in the scene I should have said that already.

And yeah, they do 'find the time-capsule' (even though it was only a time capsule in the figurative sense). It's a very big thing. And that wasn't the last you'll see of Peter Connor.

One stupid thing I just realised. I was working on the assumption that Jovia would have twise Earth's gravity (that's Jupiter's gravity at about a hundred kilometres out of its atmosphere). So Jovia needs to orbit pretty fast to counteract all its weight in that gravity. But then, if it was orbiting that fast, the gravity would be cancelled out anyway - meaning that it'd be pretty much weightless on the station.
I may need to rework the Jovia setting.

EDIT: Figured out what I'll do about Jovia. I'm going to rewrite this bit before I continue on. I'll hope to post something soon.
