NASA Test Centrifuge

You can volunteer for NASA's High Capacity Centrifuge spin tests

NASA Test Centrifuge thanks to Lucas McCarter

NASA teamed up with two universities to study ways to reduce the adverse effects of space travel on astronauts' physical health. This month scientists conducted a pilot study (see above) on the 20-G centrifuge at NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California. The centrifuge creates artificial spinning gravity forces, simulating up to 20 times the normal forces of gravity we experience on Earth.
