"From our last expedition to planet Pyxl, 255 objects were recovered. Mostly mundane in composition and appearance, except by the very last object. It looks like a chip-sized construct, almost flat, with four collored squares on each of it's faces. If left alone, it begins spinning and floating, as if trying to sintonize some sort of frequency like an antenna.
No one is really sure of what it is, but the most accepted hypothesis is that the object carries some sort of hidden message, and is trying to convey it to us.
The experts scientists analysing the object were unable to recover the message, and say that it may not be possible to save it without means to physically change it's wavelenght's extension. They say however, that with careful analysis and time, they just might find out how to extract the message and disclose it to the world. According to them nerds, they need to decompress said wavelenght if they are to access this hidden content, which is compressed to avoid deterioration and needless energy expendidure."

 the animation is like a mid-therm now, it kinda pauses in the main frame but it doesnt and it look odd :s I think that you should like really pause on that main frame or just go for the fluent thing :)

 Suggestion heard, approved and applied. Thank you!

 I feel like the animation would look better if it was faster. Nevertheless it's a pretty neat piece.
