Slap one of these babies on it and you're good to go:
Incidentally, this "terrarium" concept does suggest something about
Urth: that its spacefaring technology must already have been fairly
advanced along these lines for Typhon to hollow out the Long Sun ship
using just such a process as Robinson describes. His people knew what
they were doing.
One might guess that his existing ships were unable to move large
populations because they were too small; perhaps then they performed FTL
travel by pure acceleration, being limited in size and therefore mass.
