The "G-Lab Hotel"
High Frontier user Bob Brodbeck has been using the game, not so much as a game, but as a tool to aid in designing real-world space stations.  He's just published an article about his design, "The G-Hab Hotel" over at the well-respected online publication The Space Review.

He writes:

Quote:Partial artificial gravity most importantly improves crew and guest health. The system will mitigate the negative effects of zero-g on human health and productivity, both in-space and after Earth return.

Great stuff!  Please go over to The Space Review and check it out!

Hey, Joe -- Thanks very much.  Have enjoyed using High Frontier for this purpose.  BTW -- Here's the corrected URL for the article at The Space Review:

Now here's an animated GIF of the G-Hab Hotel with just the 25 m radius centrifuge and which was not used in the publication that High Frontier users might enjoy seeing.  Exactly as described in the article it is spinning at 4 rpm producing 0.5g.  Neat!

Thanks. Cheers!  === Bob Brodbeck
