Addison Hütz’s great dream was for transhumanity to experience the widest, most prized and unique collection of music, art, Earth paraphernalia, and exotic items in the universe (for a modest fee). Hütz’s dream became reality in Habitat on the Rock. Part ice castle, part scrapyard, it is considered a work of art in its own right. As curators acquire new materials and architectural plans, Habitat on the Rock takes on its own life and sprouts further from its original asteroid foundation.
Most of the old-Earth collection is made up of quality replicas, many hand-made, but a few items have been validated as original artifacts. The exotic collection purportedly includes Factor and other alien cadavers, a zoo of genetic samples, fragments of the original K-T asteroid, and a captured TITAN. Vast libraries of digital music and simulspace environments are available to the public for free.
Habitat on the Rock is in the black and white markets for collectibles. Curators hire out to freelancers to collect specific targets. Outside of the museum grounds, the habitat is entirely off-limits to visitors. The area is well defended and luxurious, with an inexplicably high volume of traffic. The cost of maintaining the collection far outstrips its income. Analysts have suggested Habitat on the Rock either has a private benefactor or runs a secret secondary business.
