There is almost exactly the same amount of gravity on the space station as there is on Earth. (Something like 99% the same). So why then do astronauts enjoy weightlessness in space? Because they're actually falling into the Earth - they're just moving towards the horizon so fast that they fall over the horizon before they lose any altitude hence they fall forever (until air resistance slows them down enough to make them crash in a fiery explosion).

Its the exact same effect as a roller coaster then you're going down a big ramp and you feel weightless for a few seconds.

So you are saying that the velocity of the space station causes the illusion of weightlessness?

No no. You would still have weightlessness without the velocity of the space station... It would just end in a few minutes in a fiery ball of death. The velocity keeps the weightlessness going almost indefinitely since it keeps you falling into the horizon rather than the ground.

We are all one being. We are all connected. It has been like this ever since the beginning creation. Separation is an illusion created by Ego.
