The Generation Ship: Abaddon’s Gate, p. 343

Self is still here! She managed to make it through a very dramatic weekend, and continue reading Abaddon’s Gate (Not another quote! Dear blog readers must be thinking: When will this end?)

One thing that’s always fascinated her about this series is the way the authors explain gravity and how space stations meant to accommodate whole cities would need to generate it.

Point of view in p. 343: Bull (She loves the Bull point of view because he’s the character-most-likely-to-explain-hard-science)

  • Spinning up the drum had meant stripping away as many of the alterations that had changed the generation ship into a weapon of war as they could. The medical stations and emergency showers had all been turned ninety degrees in the refit, prepared to use under thrust or not at all. What had been designed back in what seemed like ancient times to be floors had become walls, and now they were floors again. The whole thing was a hesitation. A stutter-step in industrial steel and ceramic.

See what she means?

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
