Hacker pollutes Cyberspace with dangerous cyberstatic by tampering with four satellites designed to keep everything free from cyber-static cling. But is his plan only to trash Cyberspace — or does he have something even more devious up his cloak? The kids learn the answer as they use balance scales and equations to restore the satellites and save Motherboard.
