I have devoured five continents. I have slurped three oceans dry. The vast sky alone remains alone out of my long reach, for I am trapped in this body which lacks wings, hands and feet. I am the world serpent. I am Jormungand.

The Jormungand-class Mobile Mining Platform is a class of civilian mobile resource extractors for harvesting asteroids.

History

The Jormungand-class Mobile Mining Platform was designed by Chiyo Amagatsu in 2086 CE, with the intention of being used to harvest remote or small asteroids not worth constructing a mining base at. In the late 2100s, the class received major upgrades to implement the latest technological advancements. Several members of the class are built under license by Dragos Industrial Concern for export sale.

Namesake

Jormungand (sometimes written Jörmungandr or Jörmungand), sometimes called the Midgard Serpent, is the name of the World Serpent in Norse Mythology, who lived in the ocean surrounding the world, and grew to be so large that he could wrap his tail around the world.
