Artificial Gravity

  • Artificial Gravity


    Artificial gravity is a concept that is ubiquitous in our science fiction yet elusive in our space program. Why is this? And how could we develop artificial gravity soon? In a Cool Worlds special, this video essay goes in depth on the topic discussing why centrifuges are the most plausible solution and early ideas on the topic. Join us a journey from Einstein's equivalence principle, to O'Neill Cylinders and Stanford Tori; from Coriolis forces to near-term experiments. Grab a cup of a tea and enjoy.

  • Can We Create Artificial Gravity?


    Thanks for watching! I actually had an early version of this ready last week. Which you can watch here on my second channel:

    I decided, with the help of my Patreon supporters, that it wasn't good enough. Have a few ideas for my next video. Space X is winning right now. What do you think? I may try to work on two videos at once this week.

    Woops forgot the math:
    The equation is a=(w^2)*r where a is the acceleration, w is the angular velocity and r is the radius.
    First we must convert RPM to radians per second. There is 2(pi) radians per revolution and 60 seconds in a minute. So one RPM equals 2(pi)/60. We then simply enter these values into the equation. For our first calculation on space station v we get a=(0.1047)^2*150=1.65 ms^-2

  • Is Artificial Gravity Really Achievable? | Answers With Joe


    Rotating habitats and artificial gravity are a staple of science fiction movies and TV shows, but the realities of space travel means that someday we'll have to get serious about artificial gravity to keep our astronauts and space travelers healthy. The question is, what's the best way to do that, and is it even possible with today's technology?

  • Artificial Gravity: Why We Need It, How Well Do It


    For those who watched, have you ever noticed that Captain Kirk is standing still on the Enterprise? Why is that? I mean, if you are in the deep space, far from any planet's gravitational attraction, you should be floating because of the absence of gravity. Captain Kirk is standing with his feet on the Enterprise's deck. He seems to weight the same that he would weight here on Earth, and also all the objects on the Hermes – as the interplanetary craft in the Martian is dubbed - are behaving as if they were in your room, and not in a spaceship travelling in the deep space. 
    Something in the Enterprise and the Hermes is simulating and creating gravity. 
    How is it possible? 
    We know that Star Trek is sci-fi. But what about real life? Is it possible to recreate artificial gravity? And why do we need artificial gravity?

    Imagine that you're inside a vehicle — or another machine — and you are spinning around so fast that the force presses your body against the wall or seat. As you spin faster and faster than pressure forcing you against the wall increases (and conversely it decreases as the spin slows down). Sure you've experienced it before. The weight feels exactly like the force of gravity that keeps your body grounded to the earth.
    Think about it. You may have experienced it in your childhood, when you visited for the first time an amusement park ride, with a classic Rotor Ride that has produced a great deal of joy since the middle of the 19th century. Did you remember it? How was it? I remember mine. It was so cool! But then I vomited. By the way, a handful of people, including astronauts, experience the same phenomenon in a human-rated centrifuge, a machine that spins to produce these high G forces, also called acceleration. They experience this G-force aboard high-performance aircraft during high speed turns, and during launches into space and when spacecraft rapidly slow as they reenter Earth's atmosphere.
    Now I want to ask you a question: have you ever heard of a reduced-gravity aircraft?
    A reduced-gravity aircraft is a type of fixed-wing aircraft that provides brief near-weightless environments for training astronauts, conducting research and making gravity-free movie shots.
    Versions of such aeroplanes were operated by the NASA Reduced Gravity Research Program, and one is currently operated by the Human Spaceflight and Robotic Exploration Programmes of the European Space Agency. The unofficial nickname vomit comet became popular among those who experienced their operation.
     But let's go back to the Rotor Ride. 
    This type of rotation produces gravity — artificial gravity to be precise. It provides weight to your body! You can't distinguish the artificial-gravity weight from the weight on Earth: to your bones and your muscles, it wiìould be pretty much the same!
    Why haven't we built ourselves a centripetal space station yet?
    One problem is the size. In fact, the scale of such a craft would pose some (big) problems. According to physics, the smaller the spacecraft is, the faster it has to rotate, so if you're going to generate gravity, it's got to be done with a large spacecraft that spins very slowly. The bigger the disk, the slower you can rotate it. 
    Are NASA and others researching the possibility to travel in an artificial gravity spacecraft?
    The answer is yes. Since the 1960s, NASA scientists have been considering the prospect of artificial gravity by way of rotation. However, the effort, funding and overall enthusiasm have waxed and waned through the decades. One example is the Nautilus-X project.

    2001: A Space Odyssey introduced a lot of people to the idea of rotation based artificial gravity, but in sci-fi, it’s far from the only one to implement the idea! Babylon 5, Halo, and Ringworld also used rotation-based artificial gravity in their stores, but, being an astrophysicist I had to ask, WHO DOES IT BEST? And more importantly, is artificial gravity in space possible? And I’m talking outside of your artificial gravity in Kerbal Space Program (but we may get there). (edited)

  • Viable Artificial Gravity Options


    Humanity, NASA, & SpaceX have some legitimate Artificial Gravity options. In this video I go over the ideal solution, as depicted in The Expanse. Then I narrow down our options to what we can realistically achieve right now, and in the very near future.

    I'm a big fan of science fiction, but I'm an even bigger fan of science reality. Awesome Space Exploration achievements humans are accomplishing right now, and in the very near future. Elon Musk's space exploration company SpaceX is gearing up to bring humans to Mars. Real artificial gravity is important, and can be practical for Humanity's upcoming interplanetary travel.

    I tried some new things in this video for example, the new logo, lavaliere mic, and smooth transitions. Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks for supporting the smallstars channel.

  • Faking Gravity in a Spaceship


    Sci-fi often shows people just walking around in a spaceship even though they should be floating. The stories that happen now or in the NEAR future doesn't have the luxury of using some mystical artificial gravity device, so they need a more realistic explanation. The common method is by rotating the spaceship, but that can cause problems if you're not careful. What kind of problems?! That's what this video is all about!

  • Simulating Artificial Gravity On SpaceXs Starship - Its A Lot Harder Than It Sounds!


    When I released the first video on this channel in regards to SpaceX’s Starship, I never really expected that to run into all these different opinions in the comment section. Honestly, I was just curious if anyone thought about the gravity problem as I did, and it seems that as I released more and more of these videos that people don’t really understand how serious this is. To put it into perspective, the entire race to Mars could end by the mid-2030s if this isn’t taken seriously. Maybe by then, modern medicine can solve this problem, but we can’t bet everything on that. So instead of rambling about without having anything to show for it, I spent the last couple of weeks designing a rotating starship, taking into account the engineering and feasibility of such an endeavor. And just a heads up, this crushed my dreams as much as it might crush more, or it might inspire others to come up with better ideas in order to secure humanity’s place amongst the stars.

    0:00 Intro: Elon never specified whether 1g gravity would be available in his Starship. However, our future Mars settlers will suffer fatal health damage if we don't have any Spacex Starship artificial gravity. Hence we present 5 Spacex Starship update possibilities to achieve a comfy 1g environment at least in the crew quarters.
    1:11 The detrimental effects of Zero-g have been proven by various experiments and scientific studies, hence Spacex Starship artificial gravity is absolutely necessary if we want to arrive on Mars safely.
    3:23 The only real technology for artificial gravity in space is rotating spaceship artificial gravity, and we present 5 ways to achieve this for the Spacex Starship interior:
    4:02 Rotate SpaceX Starship along its longitudinal axis, as SpaceX Starship size is actually large enough to support this.
    6:20 Rotate SpaceX Starship along its short axis to create artificial gravity inside.
    7:41 Dock two SpaceX Starships together at the aft section, and let them rotate around their common center of gravity to avoid zero-g at least in the Starship crew section.
    8:56 Tether two Starships together via a strong Kevlar tether and let them rotate around their common center of gravity.
    10:14 Add a rotating ring around SpaceX Starship which supports artificial gravity, e.g. by constructing a habitation ring made of several Bigelow Aerospace habitat modules. This would not only solve the zero-g problem, but also greatly enlarge the crew living area on board of SpaceX Starship.

  • Could Anti-gravity Really be Possible?


    Anti-gravity is one of those controversial subjects that some say is more in the realm of science fiction than science fact with many physicists saying it's just not theoretically possible while others are busy trying to find theories that would allow it to be possible.
    In this video, we look at some of the things that we thought were anti-gravity but turned out not to be and what could be our nearest discovery with the vailidation of Einstein's predictions of space and gravity warping.

    Music: Left Spine Down - “X-Ray”

    It’s safe to say we’ve spent a significant amount of our lives consuming science fiction.

    Berks, videos, movies and games.

    Science fiction is great for the imagination, it’s rich in iron and calcium, and takes us to places we could never visit. It also helps us understand and predict what might happen in the future: tablet computers, cloning, telecommunication satellites, skype, magic slidey doors, and razors with 5 blades.

    These are just some of the predictions science fiction has made which have come true.

    Then there are a whole bunch of predictions that have yet to happen, but still might, Fun things like the climate change apocalypse, regular robot apocalypse, the giant robot apocalypse, the alien invasion apocalypse, the apocalypse apocalypse, comet apocalypse, and the great Brawndo famine of 2506.

    Not to mention things that’ll probably never happen, things that could not be, in accordance with the laws of nature. Faster-than-light travel, instantaneous teleportation, and the ability to destroy whole planets with a space station laserpointer.

    But there’s one future technology, a massive violation of the laws of physics which plays a role in nearly every single book, show and movie you can mention.

    I promise you, if authors, screenwriters and directors tried to adhere to the laws of physics with even a shred of accuracy, your favorite scifi would unfold very differently.

    I’m talking artificial gravity.

    It’s magical. Captain Kirk can actually *stand* on the bridge of the USS Enterprise, and he just stands there. He can sit in the mess and enjoy a pint of Romulan Ale not served in a plastic bag, or go just to the bathroom without a freaky-weirdo suction toilet.

    I understand scifi authors are imagineering spaceships like ocean going vessels, yet in space.

    That’s where they go wrong.

    On Earth, you can stand on the deck of your warship, drink your Romulan Ale from an open topped non-collapsible container, and it’s all thanks to you, gravity. The Earth is pulling the ale towards its center, and it’s stopped by the glass, which is stopped by your meat and skeleton, stopped by your well polished boots, stopped by the plates on the deck of the ship, held up by the rest of a the ship, held up by buoyancy, which all work to keep everything from zipping down to the center of the planet, or at least the floor of the ocean.

    Out in space, no gravity. You’ve seen the crew on board the International Space Station.

    Once you’re in microgravity, you float around like a balloon. You have to drink and pee into a tube, and one of those involves a vacuum cleaner. Protip: Do not mix up those tubes.

    The only way to get gravity is with mass. The more mass, the more gravity you get. Without mass, you can’t have gravity.

    Before we go any further, there’s no such thing as anti-gravity.

    Now that’s out of the way, there are a few ways we can fake it.

    The force of gravity that we feel is actually just an acceleration towards the center of the Earth at 9.8 meters per second squared, or 1G.

    As Einstein showed us, everything’s relative. If you were in a spacecraft and it was accelerating away from Earth at a rate of 1G, it would feel exactly the same if you were standing on the ground.

    This is known as constant acceleration, and if you could somehow power a spacecraft with that much energy, it would be just what you needed.

    Want to get to the Moon? Accelerate at 1G for an hour and a half, turn around, and decelerate for the same amount of time. Not only would you get to the Moon in under 3 hours, but you would have experienced Earth gravity the entire time.

    Want to fly to Jupiter? It would only take about 80 hours of acceleration, and then 80 hours of deceleration. At the halfway point of this journey, you’re going more than 2,800 kilometers per second, which is close to 1% the speed of light.

  • Artificial Gravity in Interplanetary Spaceship - more real


    In my previous video we talked about the possibility to make an interplanetary spaceflight with artificial gravity without rotation.
    But is it real at least in a few next decades?
    Now we will look at the real option of how we could travel throug the interplanetary space using the spaceship with artificial gravity.

  • Artificial Gravity = Molecular Interaction


    Artificial Gravity

    Hello people on utube, in exercising my imagination I was considering artificial gravity on a starship, so, I decided to look at the USS Enterprise Starship's computer for advice. Log on the ship's computer and type in Gravity, we can view how they created artificial gravity.

    Reading through the ship's information, I discovered they where using: Molecular Interaction with their Gravity Generator. Essentially, they developed the same force used by Geckos. Geckos have hairs on their feet called: Setae. Setae provide an electromagnetic attraction force to the surface their on.

    To explain further, Molecular Interaction can be described as: all atoms have a charge and we know that opposite charges attract each other. There artificial gravity was created by generating a some amount of static charge on a person within the Starship, which allows them to attract the ship's metal hull, thus creating artificial gravity. We have to thank Geckos for sharing there unique ability to attract to walls and ceilings, Thank You!

  • Artificial Gravity in Science Fiction


    Dr. Erin Macdonald (PhD, Astrophysics) takes us through the physics behind gravity, what types of artificial gravity has been imagined in science fiction, and which ones we may see in our lifetime. Running along a rotating space station, bracing for acceleration through our solar system, gravity generators…exploring space long-term requires some sort of artificial gravity to help sustain our Earth-adjusted bodies.

    Dr. Macdonald is an internationally recognized space science expert, writer, speaker, and consultant. Her academic research background is in gravitational waves and general relativity. She currently lives in Los Angeles and is working as a writer and science consultant for the Star Trek franchise.

  • Why humans arent on Mars yet- Artificial Gravity on Starship


    Why is artificial gravity so important so that humans can go to Mars? And more importantly, how would we introduce artificial gravity in SpaceX's Starship with current day technology? In this video, we explore just that.

    Episode 3

    0:00 The Importance of Artificial Gravity
    0:30 Options for Artificial Gravity
    0:48 Launch and Docking of Starships
    1:04 How to create Artificial Gravity
    1:30 Getting to Mars
    2:23 Undocking and Entering Mars


    Script: When we see movies in space, they all have one thing in common: gravity. But why is it important? Is it just some sci-fi stuff that we don't need? Well, let me give you an example to vividly illustrate the point. After just one year in space, the astronaut Scott Kelly's feet swole up to the size of bowling balls. This is a trained astronaut who had gone on previous missions to space. Imagine what space could do to ordinary people going to Mars. Experiencing zero gravity for such a long time can cause bone loss, impaired eyesight, DNA issues, and an impact on cognitive ability. Now that we know the reason we need artificial gravity on Starship, let's look at how it could work. There are many different options, really. We could make an expensive and impractical ginormous space station that would take hundreds of launches to build and then a ridiculous amount of fuel to send to Mars. Or we could build a sensible design that would only use three Starships, 2 of which would have a full crew and cargo. Let's look at how that would work. To start off, Starship 1 would launch, escape the atmosphere and then refuel. At the same time, Starship 2 and the middle Starship would do the same. After that, they would join up with Starship 3 that would hold two truss beams. The beams would extend and connect both of the crewed Starships. As for the spinning part, we would first have to orient the Starships such that both their main engines would be opposite to each other. At that point, we would introduce the spinning which would be approximately 3 rpm, which means we'd be completing a spin 3 times every minute. In the current position of the Starships, the centrifugal force is pushing against the side of the Starship which isn't what we want. We want the Starships to be inline with the truss so the gravity is pulling the Starship down. So we rotate the Starships. But wouldn't the Starships decelerate if there was no engine fueling them? Well, when you're moving through space which has no gravity, there's one advantage. You can set an object in motion with one short burst and it won't stop moving until you stop it. This is different from when you're escaping from Earth and there's gravity pulling you down. Gravity isn't all good. But now with the Starships rotated, these ships are ready to conquer the stars. Now while we're traveling to Mars, not only do we have gravity when we want to go to the washroom, eat or sleep, but we can take some time out of the 18 month trip to go to the middle Starship. In there, we could play space dodgeball or any other game. All games would be much more fun with no gravity. Imagine dodgeball 3D. I've always hated the fact that you could only move in four directions in dodgeball. Now, you can move in any direction other than time. Trust me, we'll get there. But in all seriousness, this isn't like science fiction. These are all things that could easily happen. We have all the technology needed. But now that we've arrived at Mars, we need to decelerate so that we aren't spinning and crashing into Mars. So the Starships go back into the engine position and fire a short burn to decelerate quickly. They could also do multiple shorter ones to make the difference in gravity when the crew enters Mars even smaller, adding more comfort. The Starships detach and can now enter Mars with a crew whose feet aren't bowling balls and who've had the comfort of a five-star hotel. Thanks for watching and I'll see you on Mars.
