Why?

This idea apparently isn't main stream enough to make it to your average science fiction space travel type movie.

Say for example you were to attach ion thrusters to the space station for the purpose of generating a rotation. Could one then over time generate an artificial gravity?

Then again could the ISS survive such an experiment?

It exists as a means to generate artificial gravity if one is planning a trip to Mars, Venus and so on.


The ISS cannot be put into a rotational spin to create simulated gravity for two reasons. The first and most important is it is not designed to be. It was intentionally designed the way it is because it is at a constant rate of decent perfectly matched to the curvature of the Earth. This is why it travels 17,000 MPH sideways.

BTW...the rotational spin in 2001 Space Odyssey was calculated years ago by an astrophysicist and it was determined the spin rate represented in the movie was 2X greater than what was needed to produce the simulated gravity.

Thank you.

I've read that the biggest barrier to doing this is nobody knows how to make the bearing between the rotating and non-rotating portion space-safe.

Would you still get dizzy if the craft was rotating fast enough to give you a centrifugal push up against the wall?

With the pendulum method, There is no rotating / non-rotating barrier.
