Description
Greetings, test subject, and welcome back to the Aperture Science Volunteer Employee Gravity Liberation Testing Program. If you are reading this, the Luna-C Enrichment Center assumes that you have successfully navigated the first three chambers of this program. If you have not, you should immediately proceed to the beginning of the test series and start there, as attempting this test without the proper low-gravity acclimation and basic movement skills can result in various forms of personal discomfort including but not limited to: nausea, disorientation, frustration, compound fractures, laser burns, violent death, loss of promotion opportunities, and unexplained gaps on your resume.

Due to the physical and mental exertions required to complete a typical Aperture Science testing course, the design of the following test chamber originally included a gallery of vending machines which disbursed energy drinks, candy bars, methamphetamines and other motivational materials to encourage test subjects to continue onward. Unfortunately, due to budget restrictions and low employee morale it was necessary to remove these vending machines and return them to the Luna-C residential wing. To compensate for the lack of motivational materials, they have been replaced by the popular and inexpensive Aperture Science Sentry Turret, which nine out of ten surviving test subjects found to be far more motivational than nutritional supplements.

Revision 2:
- Blocked several possible exploits.
- Restored the missing clip brush keeping the player from falling into the panel recesses.
- Remembered to pack the custom signage textures this time.
- Fixed the corrupted lighting data.
- Fixed dupe turrets spawning on reload.
Revision 3:
- Fixed an exploit.
- Minor detailing.
Revision 4:
- AIR CONTROL! For those of you who've missed being able to air strafe, I've done enough testing to be sure that I can re-enable it--with a few physics tweaks to ensure it doesn't break the map.
- Fixed the mysteriously disappearing indicator lights for the cube dropper.
- Fixed several exploits.
- Fixed a few minor texture and geometry errors.
- Visleaf optimization.

Note: as with all of my maps, I will never require cube-throwing, although there are certainly parts that can be solved using it. If you think you have to throw your cube, there is an easier approach you haven't though of yet.

When you're ready to move on, Test Chamber 05 is now complete!

I liked this chamber. Slow-falling cube was fun.

Last bit was difficult but I enjoyed the rest of these maps.

@Quaternary you can also create a lot more time by putting both portals on the ground next to each other (both under the red laser), and then jumping in the air next to one of them, holding the cube over the portal, and then letting it go at the highest point.
It will block the laser for for a moment, and then for a moment again when it comes up through the other portal.

For everyone having trouble with the timing in the last room, you can gain a lot more time to place the last portal by putting a portal on the floor and ceiling, leaning down into the bottom one (not dropping it from standing height), and dropping the cube from the resulting short height.

Awesome puzzle. Very funny. Thanks.
I recorded my gameplay (valve DEM file format):Download[dl.dropboxusercontent.com]. Comments inside video.

Turrets highly explosive. Handle with care

There is a way to trap yourself in the final room. After you get the ball from the turret room, put a portal in the final room and one portal in the big chamber. Then you take the ball and re-enter the final room (using the portals). Once there, if you lose the portal connecting you back to the big chamber, you're stuck. Unless I guess you also happen to have the cube with you.

So, I did the last puzzle by cube tossing and portal spamming. If this was the design intent, then I am not a fan. The rest of it was...ok.

finally a hard moonbase map, pretty cool
