Space is the final frontier for a reason, it is the most dangerous place we have ever ventured. Not only are the temperatures close to absolute zero and the space radiation absolutely deadly, just being in the anti-gravity environment of space and eat away muscles on astronauts and cosmonauts. In order to address this issue, scientists from Moscow’s Institute of Medical and Biological Problems tested their centrifuge technology spinner, which they hope could create artificial gravity in space.
Creating artificial gravity in space could solve many of the issues connected to weightlessness in reduced gravity environments, such as allowing cosmonauts and astronauts to complete any task on board space stations much faster and alleviating the negative influences of microgravity on the body.
Centrifuge technology may make it into space within the next decade.
