The crashed space station is located in a large, shallow crater near the northeastern edge of the Toxic Valley. It appears to have fallen from orbit at a high velocity, devastating the surrounding area. Small sections of the torus, presumably torn off by the impact, lie around the partially-intact main body of the station, which is on its side. The skeletons of former station personnel are scattered across the area. Fissure site Delta is south of here.
- Airlock C7 inventory list - Found next to a skeleton, slightly southwest of the torus' core, in a broken section of the station.
- Untitled poem - In a raider cabin on a promontory in the hills south of the station ruins.
- Spacesuit and spacesuit helmet - Inside Airlock C7, unlocked with the door code listed on Airlock C7 inventory list.
The crashed space station appears only in Fallout 76.
Behind the scenesEdit
The design of the crashed station (a torus with external engines) somewhat resembles the Ballistic Orbital Missile Base 001 space station from the canceled Fallout 3 project by Black Isle Studios codenamed Van Buren.
The real world counterpart never got off the design and model stages created by Werhner von Braun in 1950, it used the theory proposed by Konstantin Tsiolkovsky that a spinning ring could be used in a weightless environment to create artificial gravity that would be controlled not only by the size of the ring but by how fast it would spin. NASA has toyed with the concept since 1975. But to date, no one has constructed one unless the Space Station X-1 attraction built by von Braun and Walt Disney in 1955 is counted.
