the one thing i don't understand about his design is that if the sphere is spinning to create gravity, wouldn't there only be gravity and atmosphere the equator of the sphere?

If the sphere is air-tight (which it would be) atmospheric pressure would be the same everywhere inside.

Gravity would be highest at the equator, and gradually reducing as one moves from the equator to the poles, at which point it would be zero.

But the artist should double check his figures for diameter vs. rotation speed; a sphere 3.53km in diameter rotating at 1.9rpm will have an effective gravity of slightly over 7g at its equator!

A rotation speed of 0.7rpm is fast enough for a sphere of this size.

Here's the tool I use for work like this: www.artificial-gravity.com/sw/…

Truly inspiring !

I'm very sorry but... you're missing a t in stationary (sue me, I'm an English teacher)

Range: 0 PRC / Sationary orbit

and while we're at it, no apostrophe necessary in "G Residential Sphere ...population on (it's) its inside surface.."

I'll go away now

Ugh, seriously, my eyes were starting to glaze over after spending so much time on these. Thanks for finding those mistakes, as soon as I can find the PSD file I'll apply some fixes. :)
