Belter

Belter

Strictly speaking, a person who practices the profession of asteroid prospector and miner (belt mining), usually working alone or with a small number of partners. Loosely, any resident of an asteroid belt, including citizens of civilised belts such as Glisten (Glisten / Spinward Marches 2036), some of whom have never been in a spaceship.
