It is fitting that the environment in which contemporary artist Darren Almond works is so wild and wind- blasted. A handsome converted Victorian threshing barn, Almond’s Norfolk retreat abuts a cornfield that stretches all the way to meet the horizon. The long, adjoining buildings of brick and terracotta tile have “a kind of Donald Judd, mini-Marfa feel,” says Almond, dressed in a yellow sweatshirt and white painter’s dungarees. The artist

He feels more at home in Europe than in America. He was bom William Arenowitch, but after college he changed his name to Arnett, as did his brother, Robert, who makes photography books about India.

Arnett’s inside voice is an outside voice. He interrupts, a lot. He often begins a sentence with «No, no,» even if heʼs about to say something positive. His jokes can sound like insults. He tends to miss,

Artificial gravity.

Plans for long-duration manned missions mean that we have to tackle the problem of coping with reduced or zero gravity.

Physicist Gerard O’Neill suggested that space colonies could consist of giant cylinders that would rotate to create artificial gravity. However, such cylinders would
