Hello Video Lovers,
Can humans survive long durations of space travel? They might, if it weren't for a lack of gravity. While artificial gravity is still the subject of science fiction, we can imitate gravity with rotational motion. But putting people in a spinning environment has some bizarre side effects as you will see in today's video. It's like a carnival ride, with science. I'll tell you this much, about 90 seonds in that room and there wouldn't be anything left in my stomach. I was getting just a little bit nauseous just watching the video.

The Artificial Gravity Lab
In the Ashton Graybiel Spatial Orientation Lab there's the Artificial Gravity Facility: otherwise known as the rotating room. Very cool. Very nauseating.
