things do not work differently out in space, they work the same everywhere.
Are you on the outside of a spaceship? No? Than why would spin be needed to "simulate" gravity?
It is quite simple, it is even taught in grade school here in the US, it is a force called "centripidal force".
As described in my above post, just like putting water on a ball and spinning it, what does the water do? It flies away.
When your inside a spinning spaceship, your being pushed away because of the spin, but you can't fly away as your inside of it. So it forces you to
the wall, at a rate that increases with the angular momentum( speed of the spin).
It is in no way gravity, and has absolutely nothingg to do with it.
As I have just explained, on earth we are on the suface being pushed out by the spin ( water on a ball) and gravity overcomes this and still holds us
down. In a spaceship we are on the inside, so the spin cannot throw us away, and we remain trapped inside, only pushed to the walls, to "simulate"
