Just for the sake of discussion...

Learning to acquire a tolerance for that is actually very possible.


Yes, but that's not even a point. You have to be attached to the rotating wall, other wise you will fly into zero g. That's why rotating hull space ship is a fantasy.

Your angular momentum will quite effectively "attach" you to the hull. In the same manner that gravity "attaches" you to the surface of the Earth.

What you are saying makes no sense as there is nothing about this that is a fantasy.

Its basic physics...



You can watch the results here, starting at around 10 minutes and 30 seconds. Despite the oscillations in the tether and other spacecraft issues, these did settle down temporarily after 20 minutes or so, and for a brief time a teeny, tiny bit of artificial gravity was observed in the Gemini capsule. How much gravity? About 0.0005 g with 0.15 revolutions per minute. Some time later the tether was released.
