3 million people....

3 million people... from Stanley Von Medvey on Vimeo.

...could live inside one of the cylinders.

15 x 30 km in dimension, rotating 40 times an hour, entire several counties could spread out over the inner surface, millions living and working in space...

  2. You have probably seen this, it calculates the radius and RPM of a rotating cylinder to generate artificial gravity: http://www.artificial-gravity.com/sw/SpinCalc/SpinCalc.htm

    I think RPM has to be lower than 2 to avoid nausea caused by coriolis effect.

    Hope it's helpful.
