Space habitats create their own gravity? How?

How big would it be, if thats inside a ring? Maybe there could be 2 or more rings on the same axis?

Not sure, but im sure there are some complex calculations to find out from that picture ^^

Ya, there is also probably a complex mirror system to simulate a 24 hour cycle of night and day, since that probably spins much faster than a 24 hour period.

Mabe thats a few km in diameter.

This is sort of off topic but has anyone ever read Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card?
