There is a framework arm holding the living module and a corresponding arm in the other direction, which should have a mass counterbalancing the living module as the arms rotate about the central axis. However the other arm is only half the length and the module at the end of it only appears to be about half the size of the living module. Together this would make for an incredibly unbalanced structure as they rotated. See more »

Don't be put off by the Marvel comics movie fans bagging this film, it is not made for them; there is no action, stunts, CGI or killing. I note all the bad reviews did not mention the central premise of the screenplay, most likely they have no idea what one is.
The central premise, brought to conclusion very well by Mark Strong, the soundtrack and the director, is that for humankind to move forward then people have to be willing to sacrifice and leave behind all the trappings of life on earth - family, friends, nature, food and consumer products - and transcend all the things we constantly preach as vital to being human and yet never actively put into practice, like don't be greedy and focus only on your own life, don't kill the planet or other people etc. In a way that is what Strong's character is running a million miles from.
The main challenge he faces is to be strong enough to achieve that against all the odds of space travel and his own basic desires and ingrained human instincts. He wants a wife, he want to eat fresh food and smell flowers and have a wine with friends, and yet he wants to go beyond that much, much more, so much he will risk his sanity and his life - and he wants to do it for mankind because he thinks that earth is broken. If you follow that journey with the character you will be rewarded with a really great film and a great ending.
So if you are obsessed in your own life and live in that bubble like so many then this is not a film for you. However, if you enjoy screenplays that make you think a little bit differently about what we all believe are the most important ingredients to advancing mankind beyond looking at celebrity twitter feeds then this is a great ride.
