Investigation of the Coriolis effect in rotating space platforms

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientific


    The presence of prolonged microgravity in space has long been known to have a negative impact on the human body such as deterioration of bones and muscles. Rotating space platforms have the potential to mitigate the health risks for prolonged space travel by creating an Earth-like artificial gravity environment for the habitants. In this article, Tigran Mkhoyan elaborates on his presentation in the ‘Artificial Gravity’ segment of October’s Asgardia Space Science & Investment Congress (ASIC).
