The artificial gravity depicted in the movie can be obtained with present day technology; the first proof of concept, producing only 0.00015 g, was done in 1966 during the Gemini 11 flight. The proposed satellite Tempo3 is meant to further test centripetal artificial gravity generation. The project Mars Direct plans to spin the spaceship using a discarded upper stage as a counterweight, exactly as shown in the movie. See more
The stars were always processing in the wrong direction. If artificial gravity is via centripetal force, as a person stands up, the center of rotation is above him. If he looks perpendicular to the velocity vector (i.e. "out the window) the stars will be preceding from right to left, not up to down. See more
