Theorized by many to be the largest of the bodies thrown into orbit by whatever caused the asteroids in the same system, Cestus is the center of a great deal of controversy. The planetary surface is pockmarked with holes from where other orbiting bodies have been drawn in by the gravitational field of Cestus and impacted on its surface. It has been deemed by many surveyors to be too dangerous in terms of meteor impacts for any manner of habitation. There are rumors circulating amongst spacer lore that among the various craters on the surface of Cestus lies a nest of mynocks, although this has yet to be proven. Proven or not, however, most spacers steer clear of Cestus.
