So I have a lost colony ship that's been wandering space for "many many many" years. The entire crew of 500 is placed in hypersleep all those time.
I'm designing a colony ship(unfinished) for my story and originally planned for the crew-section in a rotating torus.
But thought that placing it there meant space-loss for more important ship areas and decided to transfer the the crew section as it's own standalone part of the ship. (Similar to the ISV Venture Star from Avatar).
Then another thought went back in my mind, It's effects on our bodies for an extended period. Zero-gravity can have an impact on us even if you're sleeping. Things like shrinkage of muscles, deteriorating join function and bones decrease in mass.
Is it the best idea to place the cryo/hypersleep sections in a rotating hub after all? What scenarios are best that fit either configurations?
