Static Atmospheres in a Rotating Space Habitat.
McKinley, John M.
Physics Teacher, v18 n8 p565-69 Nov 1980
Discusses O'Neill's proposal for the colonization of space as it offers new problems in pure physics. Addresses specifically the distribution of the atmosphere in O'Neill's habitat and whether there will be enough air at the axis of rotation to allow human-powered flight, with particular reference to the habitat's "artificial gravity."
