Paper Title
Incorporation Of Artificial Gravity In A Space Shuttle

Space exploration has many uses and endeavours with wide range of functional and practical applications. Almost all of space activities are carried out by space shuttles in corroboration with astronauts. Most of the times, while functioning, astronauts face severe health ailments that ranges from reduction in bone mass density to overall bodily weakness and take significant time to heal, causing severe crunch on available resources. Appreciable work has been done and precautions are undertaken before every mission; however, the complexity of the problem involving diverse microgravity conditions has prevented a comprehensive understanding of the phenomenon. This has necessitated active research efforts to fundamentally understand the operating physics and suggest precise solutions to address the issue. The present work attempts to explore the primary cause of the concerned aspect and suggest an accurate solution for the same. The issue converses with microgravity conditions, thence the work subjects to create artificial gravity utilizing centrifugal forces to impart gravity effect. Space shuttles in operation rotate in respective orbits and artificial gravity can be generated by subjecting it to a defined pitch movement owing to centrifugal force. The proposed method can be actuated by the orbital control systems of the space shuttle. The primary objective of the work is to investigate effectiveness of the suggested method as a potential and attractive artificial gravity generator and to understand role of key controlling parameters. The predictions of the proposed design are compared theoretically and matched reasonably well. It is expected that the adaptation of the present design can significantly help the astronauts mitigate any health concerns. This would have an unequivocal effect on internal functions of the space shuttles and working astronauts and can drop the health issues to a very low level, thereby saving precioustime, which can be used for research activities.
