Antarcticus IV is a huge ice comet,
which seems to appear in star systems randomly
due to its incredibly complex trajectory.
Early settlers built small research stations
joined to large mining stations,
because it turns out the water on Antarcticus IV
contains more vitamins than anywhere else we know.
Now all stations are owned by Vitatech™ Industrial
and circulated by a network of humming autonomous drones.
True to what fellow travellers say,
the particles sprayed into the air from all the laser-mining
shimmers into ghostly auroras of ice and rust.
