The Transcript For This Page
Just outside the air skin, 40 km above. The Pale Man is floating a foot away from the skin, and is igniting an acetylene-oxygen torch.
Caption: As Tobi regales his invited guests, the Security System monitors the doings of his uninvited guest, the Pale Man.
Using a suction-cup hand grip to anchor himself to the skin, the Pale Man uses the torch to cut through the air skin. (At this point he's only cut an inch or two.)
Caption: Modern air skins are made up of nano-scale filaments held in place by nanobots.
Caption (2): If a meteor or other object punches a hole in the air skin, the nanobots can regroup, repair the damage and seal the leak.
The Pale man has cut a gash almost three feet wide. We can see a sheet of pressuirzed atmosphere blowing out through the gash now.
Caption: The Little Prince's air skin is more sophisticated. If he wanted to, Tobi could order it to eat the intruder.
The Pale Man is now attempting to push himself through the gash but is having to fight the atmosphere rushing outward.
Caption: But Tobi is curious about what this fellow is up to, so he has ordered the nanobots to stand down for right now.
