The metallic model of a skyscraper that Jim builds for Aurora is the Chrysler building in New York City, which was completed in 1930.
Good morning, James. How are you feeling?
Jim Preston: Wait. What?
Wake-up Hologram: It's perfectly normal to feel confused. You just spent 120 years in suspended animation.
Jim Preston: What?
Wake-up Hologram: It's okay, James.
Jim Preston: It's Jim.
Wake-up Hologram: Jim.
A ship where no humans were awake wouldn't need artificial gravity, particularly when such an effect had to be accomplished by spinning the ship, which would complicate astrogation, steering, etc., put stress on things fastened to the outside of the hull, etc., and generally complicate things unnecessarily. During the initial and final parts of the trip, while people were awake, the engines would presumably be providing acceleration or deceleration, which would itself provide enough gravity without spinning. A combination of thrust and spinning would produce a resultant fake gravity which would be their vector sum, but the spin of the ship would add a coriolis effect which would make things move in weird curved paths.
