My latest effort has been the design of an iPhone application to calculate the force of artificial gravity for spin habitats, whether on ships or space stations.

Inputs are only the rotation period and radius and it spits out RPM and effective gravity, along with edge velocity of the habitat.

This will be helpful for scifi gamers and authors, and should help prospective astronaughts.

It is another toy app, but still has a small practical use.

And I just happened to have a spin habitat image, one rendered from Strata of Alpha 9 station.

Worked out rather well.

It is complete and uploaded to Apple for release approval.

Yippy another one bites the dust.
