Hi everyone, here's the situation: Everyone knows that you can simulate artificial gravity by rotating a space ship. Usually these scenarios include an atmosphere with regular air inside. I know that the inclusion of air has an influence on the effects inside by way of friction. How different (if at all) would it be to do the same experiment but in a vacuum. I've made an animation to illustrate the point. What would happen to the man standing on the outside of the ship? Would he be able to stand there perfectly perpendicular to the ground or would the coriolis effect make him lean? What would happen if he were to jump straight up? I'm working on a video game that takes place aboard a spinning space ship. In one of the scenes the player has to go outside and climb a ladder through the spine of the ship. I'd just like to know if that's possible and if yes, what would it be like, compared to regular gravity here on Earth.
