I now find it boring to be truthful, with all the brains working on the space station, I would have thought that they would have found some way of introducing an artificial gravity by now. Until that happens, it'll only be a rther expensive Mecchano set.

It can be done, but it involves lying on a rotating bed that creates a centrifugal force, and thereby simulates a gravity loading on a human body.

The science fiction vision of huge space stations that slowly spin to produce a gravitational load is really just a vision - it would cost a very great deal, and the station would have to be very big to make it a practical proposition.
