Smith Lands Station
The concept of time is, fundamentally, an abstraction. It can be likened to a grid, laid over a universe in which the only constant is perpetual flux. Accurate measurement of the passage of time is an indispensable element of the scientific method; it allows us to track and record the changes around us, even as it permits us to sidestep the fact of our own minute individuality. Moving the length of the station, passengers see time-lapse sequences of natural processes small and large: seeds grow into trees; continents shift and collide; and stars coalesce, burn bright, collapse, and finally explode into their fundamental elements.
