The Smoke Ring
  • Description

    Read "The Integral Trees" and "The Smoke Ring" by Larry Niven.
    He has invented a habitable world with no actual world. The so-called Smoke Ring is a free-fall environment in orbit around a fictional neutron star--LaVoy's Star (that blue dot in the center) which, itself, is in a binary orbit with a yellow-white dwarf. Plants, animals, and eventually humans, end up floating around a gas torus comfortably larger than earth's orbit. Endless room for adventure.
