Von Braun space station concept floated by Gateway Foundation.

July 30, 2019 | By | Reply More

The Von Braun Station proposed by the Gateway Foundation would be a rotating space station designed to produce varying levels of artificial gravity by increasing or decreasing the rate of rotation.

The station looks to accommodate national space agencies conducting low gravity research, as well as space tourists who want to experience life on a big space habitat with the comfort of gravity and the feel of a hotel.

The concept rather resembles an orbital version of the London Eye bog wheel by the Thames – with much larger hab-capsules rather than City observation pods.
