Life with no gravity quickly causes bone and muscle damage. If we travel to Mars, we will need artificial gravity, but there's a problem. The craft must be kept in balance as it rotates. Like a satellite being "spun-up", everything must be evenly distributed for it to rotate about its center. Otherwise, it will quickly become uncontrollable resulting in the loss of the mission. How would we live in such a condition that we couldn't move about freely?
