I don't think that is a rotating cubical structure, (of course I could be
wrong) but a nuclear pulse engine, particle generator, secondary thruster,
or just something to look good. (Hehe...) From the picture, and schematics I
saw of Agama, it looks highly unlikely that there is room for rotating arm.
I wonder where you saw it 'orbiting', please explain to us. Thanks.
