This is something I often wondered. How convincingly can you reproduce or at least simulate microgravity or any arbitrary acceleration field with a controlled trajectory in a constant gravitational field?I guess it depends of the available space of your device. After all, if you have an infinite space, you can reproduce microgravity with a free fall. But in a bounded sphere of any given diameter, how well can it work?
If your small they can do it quite well. Simply spin you across all three axis evenly, works almost perfectly for one point and pritty good for small things like eggs.
wrong. Free fall is the only way. Spinning would not do it. It is still in a one g field. If spinning could do it then there would be a whole industry based on it and there would be no need to fly microgravity experiments.
