Space station artificial gravity is tested in a centrifuge of the type seen in "2001: A Space Odyssey" at NASA Langley Research Center. Two different rotation rates simulate one-tenth gravity (0.1 G, station rotating at about 4 rpm) and one-half gravity (0.5 G, station rotating at about 9 rpm).

This is the same public domain video uploaded by NASA with letterboxing (black borders) removed and the aspect ratio corrected. Also, this particular NASA Langley video contained two other unrelated segments (comparison of walking and running Earth and lunar gravity, and lunar landing simulation in simulated lunar gravity) which I have uploaded separately.
