* AppliedPhlebotinum: Patricia has a device that measures the value of Pi. The problem is Pi is a constant - the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Unless someone back on earth discovered that Pi ''isn't'' a constant (and what an upending of Mathematics THAT would be...), there's no reason for such a device to exist.
** AlienGeometries: The circumference/diameter ratio is only a constant in Euclidean geometry. Some seriously warped spacetime is encountered at various points, and variation in the value of that ratio is a valid (if awkward) way of measuring how warped it is.

* AppliedPhlebotinum: AlienGeometries: Patricia has a device that measures the value of Pi. The problem is Pi is a constant - Since the series deals with some seriously warped spacetime, a locally determined value for Pi (the ratio of between the circumference and radius of a circle to its diameter. Unless someone back on earth discovered that Pi ''isn't'' a constant (and what an upending of Mathematics THAT would be...), there's no reason for such a device to exist.

Oh, and the descendants of humanity are still living in the asteroid, down a corridor in the last chamber that extends '''beyond''' the end of the asteroid. And they've been waiting a lot time to come back home...
