An Electrical Short is a condition in electrical systems where an unintended low-resistance path is created between high-voltage and low-voltage. This path will be at risk of drawing more current than the circuit can handle, and has the possibility of irreparably damaging circuit components or depleting the power supply.


The Simulators are able to simulate a short in the Habitat systems using their software.

During Daedalus, the buzzers were observed to short several times causing visible arcs of electricity, and electrocuting Stefan De Young.
