Artificial Gravity

The Space Show Classroom returns with special guest Joe Carroll discussing the subject of artificial gravity.  Mr. Carroll has provided us with two Power Point Presentations which he will be using during our Classroom discussion.  Both presentations are available below.  Our Classroom discussion with co-hosts Dr. John Jurist and Dr. Jim Logan will be Tuesday, May 3, 2011 from 7-9 PM PDT.

Thank you.

1. Listener Joe - May 3, 2011

Thanks Joe for your dedication to artificial gravity experiments. I enjoyed listening to you and appreciate your honest answers to my questions.

My suggestion is along the lines of David’s suggestion of building a model to show at presentations. Build a small satellite that is ready to go into space that consists of two separate components. One performs the dynamic motion needed for two tethered components of disproportionate mass. The other flies in formation and monitors the rotating tethered vehicles orbit after orbit. Data is downloaded to ground stations during visible passes. This data produced in space from a tethered vehicle would be of great value to those interested in studying it for larger and significantly more expensive applications.

The University of Texas got a small satellite into orbit recently for $250,000 and 8 years of preparation using free labor from inquisitive minds. So can you, if you get enough commercial investors or university students ignited.
