GSPIN Rotating Space Station ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
The station consists of a habitat (9 ton) at the end of a 50 m wire, and a centre service module (6 ton) with a docking port, solar panels and a heat radiator. These two elements are connected by an inflated tunnel. The assembly was launched on a Delta 4 Heavy. The burnt-out upper stage is the counter weight (6 ton) at the end of 75 m long wires. The rotational speed is 2.5 rpm, resulting in a artificial gravity of 3.4 m/sē, about 1/3 of earth gravity. This rotation is well within the 'convenience limit' of about 3 rpm. The effects of preventing bone degradation of the astronauts on long space travels shall be studied aboard this station. A spacecraft with a centre-line docking port (like the Delta Glider or the CEV) is required for docking.
