Once you enter the Mining Bay doors, make an immediate right to enter a large open room with a giant gear. Use your Stasis skill to slow down the wheel, then shoot the purple computer chip on the side of the mechanical wheel. Repeat the process on the other giant wheel after going zero gravity to Destroy the Gravity Tethers objective.
