“Outside, he saw the VonBraun-wheel-designed space station orbiting the Earth.”
(As a side note, I do not study the English language, I'm merely an amateur writer)
A “VonBraun wheel” is an idea, and thus a noun, except, it is also two nouns combined together to create a new noun with a different meaning. I'm trying to say that something is noun-verbed, denoting that connection with a hyphen (as taught in HS). Examples being black-colored, water-washed, etc.
I'm arguing with myself whether it should be as it is, or: “... VonBraun wheel-designed ...” or “... VonBraun wheel designed ...” or “... VonBraun-wheel designed ...”
