Re: Asgardia: Artificial Gravity ¶
I don't know what nuclear reactors have to do with artificial gravity. In space we will have sunlight 24/7, so I don't see why we would use nuclear reactors unless we place our habitat outside the orbit of Mars.
Artificial gravity can be induced by spinning the habitat. The inside rim of a wheel or cylinder would experience the maximum of gravity. If the habitat spins too often, residents will feel the Coriolis effect, which causes trajectories to curve in unintuitive ways. The quirks of Coriolis effects may cause longterm psychological problems, such as head aches, involuntary clumsiness, etc.
A full-sized cylinder with a diameter of six kilometers and earthlike gravity at the rim would spin about once every 32 minutes. Coriolis effects would be unnoticeable.
