(urth) Simulation of a 'star crosser' (hollowed asteroid) like in Long Sun!

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.
