Can We Create Artificial Gravity?

I decided, with the help of my Patreon supporters, that it wasn't good enough. Have a few ideas for my next video. Space X is winning right now. What do you think? I may try to work on two videos at once this week.
Woops forgot the math:
The equation is a=(w^2)*r where a is the acceleration, w is the angular velocity and r is the radius.
First we must convert RPM to radians per second. There is 2(pi) radians per revolution and 60 seconds in a minute. So one RPM equals 2(pi)/60. We then simply enter these values into the equation. For our first calculation on space station v we get a=(0.1047)^2*150=1.65 ms^-2
