THE ORPHAN goes to the SPACE STATION

I took some time off from the The Eons-Lost Orphan sequel because I was having trouble with a plot point. The next morning as I came slowly awake the solution occurred to me. I hurried through getting ready for the day and returned to the sequel.

Jane is now on the World Space station doing, hmm…. You’ll have to buy the book to find out what.

Here is my first draft of an image of the space station. In the time of the Orphan, some 15+ years in our future, it was built by a consortium of the top hoteliers of the world. The “cans” at the far ends of the station are like combination hotels, shopping malls, entertainment arenas, and offices.

The station spins to create artificial gravity in the cans that mimics the gravity of the Moon. This serves double duty. It lets people traveling to and from the Moon adjust to the transition in gravity. More importantly, it keeps people who spend a long time in zero-G from being near-invalids for a few weeks when they return to Earth.
