Alien Artifacts on Titan Are Puzzles

Did the "kids" forget to pick up their toys on Titan?

Alien artifacts found on Titan have been determined to be puzzles. Multi-holed shapes each came with cords of different lengths. The length of the cord always matched the shortest route to go through all the holes and return to the first hole. The Traveling Salesman Problem!

The artifacts challenged the solver to find the shortest way to create a round trip through all the holes. In fact, the given cord will only work for the shortest route.
