    Shouldn’t Ensign Kenny be wearing a red shirt?

    Mutations would be in his offspring (if he can still make offspring after all that cell damage). We’ll need a better error correction syndrome for long space travel, which should be available right after the cancer cure.

    Bone loss is a problem if you expect to ever live in a gravity field after months in micro-gee. We deal with it now with exercise machines. Not ideal, but it works. ‘Artificial gravity’ can be done a few ways, say tethered paired spacecraft (Ben Bova used this in Mars years ago, as have others.)

    ‘Space sickness’ is the same old ‘sea-’ or ‘air-‘, and clears in a couple of days. Immune response is different.

    Debris impacts are going to be a problem (especially in local Earth orbits, with all our irresponsible trash and junk) until we can figure out how to clean it up. There’s a business opportunity there for somebody!

    How something called “Space Rapture”, a condition (if it’s real) in which astronauts start having seeing thing in space that are not there?

    These dangers are minor compared to the ones Kenny faces in the daily operations of the RU Sirius and its crew.

    “Space rapture” is when you go to a rock concert and there is an empty seat on either side of you.

    You sure it isn’t “space madness”?
