We've engaged the Terravator's Subterranean Mode, and it's ability to pass through the rocks below the quarry floor will let us get up close and personal. Let's see if we can get a signal on our water droplet and track it onward!

We've quickly found our water droplet coursing through the holes and cracks in the rocks below the quarry. We can detect very tiny holes, called pores between the grains that make up our rock!

We've learned that the term "porosity" refers to how much of the rock is made up of these holes, and if they are well connected they have "permeability"!

Let's proceed onward deeper into the rock and investigate further!
