The SZ Crateris A VII ISO "Goldilocks". The ISO is 150 kilometres across and consists of tangles of fullerite threads with superconductor cores and irregular diamondoid computational cores. The threads enable it to interact with the magnetic field of SZ Crater VII, including setting up intense resonance modes and changing orbit. There are three other ISOs in the system, called the Three Beers (relating to an old biont tale) orbiting the second planet. The ISO main intellect is a Solarist theoestheticist multimind that constructed the object in 3400. At present it is a monastic retreat for ais, uploads and alifes of the Fredermann sect of Solarism.
