Evie: Jacob. You got a minute?
Hardy: A minute. But then I gotta go. There's a thing in Belarus; I should be back Monday.
E: If you're in a hurry, can I have your brownie?
H: You can have half. What did you want to show me?
E: Moon X is back.
H: Oh, boy. We saw what it did to Jupiter.
E: Or "with." You could think of it as "with Jupiter."
H: Whatever, the thing made some major changes to two of Jupiter's moons.
E: Yep, then it blinks out. Gone fourteen months. Then Mercury. And then blink, out. Seven months.
H: And you can't track it.
E: Oh, I think I might have a way. But right now that doesn't matter because guess what just showed up hanging out next to Venus.
H: You're kidding.
E: I wish.
H: Let me see that. What's it gonna do there?
E: I don't know. Magic, I guess. You know what really worries me? Next time it blinks out?
H: Where does it go?
E: Where does it go.
H: You can have the rest of my brownie.
