With a renewed focus on space exploration comes a serious effort to keep astronauts healthy when in space for extended periods of time. Brian Davis Ph.D., of the Cleveland Clinic is working with NASA to find a way to reach this goal.

considering the effects of angular momentum with respect to the calculations of a stable orbit, is the concept of an exercise gym necessary for the relative time period?

I like this idea of what you are trying to prevent in bone loss in outer space. However, we already have a system of creating artificial G forces. We call it centrifugal motion forces. Why doen't NASA utilize that principal for a spinning top type of space station to solve this requirement for prolonged space stays? This might also solve some of the positioning problems of stability. I just don't understand why this approach has not been used or even tried to my knowledge?
