Financing sectionEdit

I've moved the first reference of YourNameInSpace to the financing section, where it is more appropriate. Given the small length of the article, the previous placements smacked of a tinge of advertising. No information has been removed, only slightly rearranged.

Program shut down?Edit

Some parts of this article are in conflict with other parts. At the beginning it says the program shut down. Later on it says that development continues. The website says they are accepting applications for Summer 2008. What is the current status of this program? Gary (talk) 00:31, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Dead as a dodo. Here is a copy of the official announcement. --GW 08:11, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

7 rpmEdit

The Science section currently mentions 7rpm as a limit beyond which debilitation effects occur. I am unable to access the reference, but I suspect that its figures deal with human physiology. Is there any reason to believe that this limit might not scale inversely to body size? Are there any references to this in lab animals? Did the MGB program test the effects of 35 rpm on lab mice here on earth? A habitat rotating such that it would generate 0.38g in space, if tested on earth, would yield 1.07 on an incline, so such a test would be quite feasible, and would seem to be one of the important early steps of such a project. -- (talk) 15:11, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

I replaced the WP:SYN comparison of human RPM limits with mention of those controls proposed by the MGB program, including short-radius centrifuge testing. -- (talk) 13:51, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
