(Space) Barrel Roll Physics


Recommended Posts

I saw that video, it was good, but he neglected to mention the Arwings' G-Diffusers, which would be a more logical and practical explanation as to why they can barrel roll in space.

It wasn't so much about the Arwing as it was about could a real spacecraft to our current technology do this maneuver.

The only clue we have about what a G-Diffuser actually does is the name. Diffusion means moving from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration. This implies that it lowers the effects of gravity. How it does this and what effects it has on the ship in space are unknown, though some sources imply that the G-Diffuser drives the ship's shields and is responsible for the barrel roll deflections so it may generate some kind of opposing force.
