All I know about that physics concept is that fast rotation causes something in the middle to stay up rather than come down with the force of gravity. I always remember that ride where people stand in a circular place  and it spins around super fast. The people stay stuck to the walls of the ride.

Because centrifugal force acts away from the center, and all forces have an equal and opposite force to hold them in equilbrium.   At least that is what Newton thinks.
