That's awesome as hell dude. I love all the details that this speaks of to this world. That's a planetary ring right? Falling apart, uncared for - the government of the planet has to have collapsed, no one has stepped in to maintain it, post-civilization, possibly post-apocalyptic, but you know they reached a huge technological peak before it all came tumbling down. Now there are probably areas where chunks of it have fallen, probably destroyed cities. Hell if a large enough piece fell it could level huge stretches on its own. That's totally badass. Is this from a specific story/setting?
