Actually, the spaceports of the colonies do not rotate, so they are
essentially in a state of near zero gravity. That's why lift grips are
used inside the spaceports. However, the point about the gravity in the
rest of the colony being variable is still valid. As for the Kampher, I
believe that it may have enough thrust to pull this off in earth normal
gravity...
