    Elon Musk is a true visionary. But I’m wondering about the long term effects of gravity on the human body. There is so much to learn about the long term effects. But during the journey to mars, for how long would the spacecraft be accelerating and decelerating for, and would the forces during those phases be anything like enough to simulate gravity on Earth?
