Are you considering the use of any artificial gravity?

Yes. While DRA 5.0 baseline was a zero-G architecture, we have developed a habitat configuration that would easily permit inducing an artificial gravity field. While the radius of rotation in this habitat is fairly small, less than 3-meters, with the crew in an unconscious state we do not have to be concerned with the typical issues of uncomfortable gravity gradients or Coriolis effects. If we are going to have an active crew member, we would need a slightly more complex design that would have a larger radius.
