To counteract such debilitating effects, research groups around the world are investigating artificial gravity -- the notion that astronauts, exposed to strong centrifugal forces, may experience the effects of gravity, even in space.
None of these proposed artificial gravity countermeasures has ever been tested on humans in a weightless environment.
They include Space Island Group, which hopes to build a space station out of empty space shuttle fuel tanks that rotates to provide artificial gravity.
I began the first story in The Clone Chronicles with a discussion of space stations and manufactured planets which had artificial gravity.
It won't be spinning either, as artificial gravity would spoil many of the experiments to be carried out.
As the wheel rotates, it creates artificial gravity so astronauts don't suffer from prolonged weightlessness.
These issues include developing artificial gravity, replacing the space-shuttle fleet with new vehicles, and possibly using nuclear-propulsion technology.
It will take place at the DLR German Aerospace Center's ':envihab' facility next to the European Astronaut Centre in KAaAaAeA ln, and over 60 days, "researchers will test the effectivene of artificial gravity in combating the symptoms of weightlessness by spinning the subjects in a centrifuge while still in bed.
This is achieved by using a viscous fluid to fill the space between two concentric spheres of varying temperature, which rotate when a high voltage is applied (to simulate an artificial gravity field).
For example, he shows excerpts from 2001: A Space Odyssey to teach the concept of artificial gravity.
