Artificial gravity. The advances in astronomy

Artificial gravity involves the alteration of natural gravity or force G artificially, both in space and on Earth. There are various projects and studies to manage to dominate gravity, and most of them use centripetal force and linear acceleration. Both astrophysicists and aerospace engineers investigate and create new methods for the generation and manipulation of gravitational fields.
