Death Star Physics
When approaching a Death Star landing bay, it usually looks like a side approach:
Unfortunately, your artificial gravity generator is broken. From your perspective, as you approach the landing bay, does it feel more like a vertical drop?
As you get closer, does your perspective immediately “flip” from the horizontal to the vertical sensation, or does it feel more like a sickening plunge over the edge of a giant roller coaster?
And how about those people working in the landing bays. For them, it seems like the bay is on the “side” of the Death Star. So I guess Death Star gravity must be machine-generated, because it always pulls “down”, rather than towards the center of the sphere.
If, like Twitter, the gravity generator fails, wouldn’t people fly towards the center of the station? For people on the top level, this is no problem. But people working in the side landing bays would fly towards the inside walls, and people on the “bottom” levels would fly toward the ceiling.
Is there zero gravity at the center of the station? (again, assuming the artificial gravity is temporarily broken)
