This question already has an answer here:
Man is on board of a spaceship with enabled artificial gravity swimming in a pool. Due to a malfunction gravity goes out. Pool liquid tends to form a sphere with the man locked inside.
- Will it still be possible to swim out of the bubble given a weightlessness?
- As for artificial gravity mechanism I would suggest two options:
- There is some kind of gravity field, which could be turned on and off almost immediately.
- There is more conventional spinning gravity that fill fail smoothly.
P.S. Situation plot is taken from a sci-fi movie Passengers (2016).
P.P.S. There is a similar question answered at WB: 0g pool: can I keep a big ball of water in space?
Still would like to keep a separate one, because it more focused on surviving a gravity failure while in a pool than the mechanics of a zero-g pool itself.
