here's one for ya...
-> station's belly always points to the earth...
Another thing... Think of the solar panels on the space station. For
good efficiency, they always have to aim at the sun. But if the station
were rotating, the panels would have to be on fancy pivots so as to
turn to keep facing the sun. They aren't, so they don't, so it isn't.
Maybe it rotates once per year, to keep the panels aligned, but that's
very different from once every 90 minutes!
