The Humbarine Asteroid Belt is wildly known to be one of the most ferocious asteroid belts in the known universe. The Belt is comprised of asteroid chunks mainly comprised entirely of densely packed metal ore. The composition of the asteroids makes it near impossible to destroy them before they can collide with starships. During the massive civil war that took over the system, the primary conglomerates mined the belt continually for a number of months before determining that it was not worth losing hundreds of lives and billions of credits worth in material and machines.
The history of the belt is unknown. All studies, both geological and astrological cannot find signs of a planet’s destruction in the Corynth System. It is theorized by most scientists that there was a scientific anomaly, a planet that had an orbit that took it through no less than five systems and was three times larger than any sun on record. This theory came about when astronomers found that a number of planets in other systems were shifting slowly in their elliptical orbits, and the only reason that could account for this change was the disappearance of a large mass.
