The article definitely says "sub-orbital" not "orbital".
"China’s space tourism operators will lift off for first time in 2025 at between $280k-$400k per sub-orbital seat, according to the founder of Beijing-backed commercial launch service provider CAS Space, Yang Yiqiang."
Sit on a swivel office chair with your feet off the floor. Stick your arms out and slowly rotate them left then suddenly jerk them right, you'll spin slightly to the left on the chair. Repeat many times and you can turn yourself all the way around.
Watching the video it is obvious the robot is doing the same thing. This has nothing to do with curved space and everything to do with overcoming friction at slow vs fast speeds.
The article does NOT say "more radioactive" as many commentards above seem to have assumed.
The article says "more reactive" which is a different thing entirely.
Perhaps the article has repeated a typo, or maybe it means what it says: more likely to react with, say, oxygen or some other common reactant.
