“Prosperity Station’s spine was a sixty-meter tube, three meters in diameter with an assortment of nodules, blisters, and annexes placed at functional locations along its length. At both ends, cylindrical zero-g modules clustered like frozen fruit on a winter twig. Encircling the spine, each secured by three spokes, a series of hoops rotated sedately.

The hoops are 15 meters in radius, with 7 rotations a minute giving one g.
