* We human beings need gravity to maintain a strong bone structure, therefore we should simulate gravity in the International Space Station and in future additional space stations and in future double space ships.

* To simulate gravity, we should slowly spin our International Space Station ... slowly at first. Spinning the space station slowly would allow us to begin experimenting with the provision of different levels of synthetic gravity in our space station.

* We would learn how to build better space stations. We would learn how to re-arrange the different components of the growing, never-finished space stations. We would learn which components need to be strengthened or built stronger in the first place.

* We should start with a slow spin in which we simulate zero gravity near the center of spin and simulated gradually increasing gravity further and further out from the center of spin. For example, at first, we might simulate Lunar gravity in the outer areas of connected habitats of our space station. Then, as we are successful, we should add on additional, connected habitats further out from the center of spin to simulate Martian gravity. Then, as we are successful with simulated Martian gravity, we should add additional, connected habitats even further out from the center of spin to simulate Earth gravity.

* As we connect additional habitats, further and further out from the center of spin of the space station, we should gradually also add to and strengthen the supporting structure of connecting, elevating shafts and stairways, and hallways, and spacelocks that holds the growing space station together.

* The weaker habitats can be kept near the zero-gravity-level center-of-spin, and the stronger habitats can be placed further out from the center-of-spin in the greater gravity circumferences.

* We ca ... to be continued
