    Real Artificial Gravity for SpaceX’s Starship

    A Youtuber has proposed a rather interesting solution to the problem of microgravity and sending people to Mars - the Gravity Link Starship!
    The post Real Artificial Gravity for SpaceX’s Starship appeared first on Universe Today.

    Is this being claimed as novel? I am suspicious of-the word truss when the link is a tie. Rotation as artificial gravity? Who knew?

    When we realize that patterns don't exist in the universe, they are a template that we hold to the universe to make sense of it, it all makes a lot more sense.

    That was proposed in 2001 , but it was a portion of the ship, not ships. Without doing calculations the truss strength is very important, but I suspect the balance of the two engines. This is my mind would put more stress on the system as the truss would be strong in a rotational basis.

    ETA: von Braun conceptualized a rotating disk in the 50's for Disney.
