I've been throwing around designs for a space station with artificial gravity for a while now and here is where its at in my head, the drawing is EXTREMELY crude but hopefully someone can understand the idea. the 2d drawing is meant to show a basic side view of it, the blue arrows indicating the gravity. the green showing which direction the craft would be spinning.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the idea is that the centrifugal force from the spinning pushes you down and the inertia in the opposite direction of the spin, so the gravity should be between those two forces, at 45 degrees.

this is almost definetly wrong but could someone please explain if this would work and if not, why? thank you! :)
