Argus Tether Cable to Hercules

There is 120 feet of yellow tether cable between Argus and Hercules. This tether cable has three copper wires and fiber optics, all the size of a human hair, for data information to pass from the ship through Argus to Hercules. Electricity passes through the cable at the amount of 2,700 volts.
