Ya I launched the ares and used soyuz-guidance to get here. You can obviously can see the upperstage in the background.

Obviously the hab will be at 0 g here so what kinds of changes can we expect this one to have from the 0.38 mars one

You might want to bring along a rachett set and bolt down all the furnature for starters.
 :lol:

Actually I think the Hab is designed to run in Zero-G for certain parts of the Mars flight, so we might want to simply make a little more space for the gym, at most.

The times in zero-G will be quite short, maybe up to a few days, so increased training might not even be neccessary.

Even small course corrections are possible without having to break the tether, and from what i know, the rotation axis will be kept aligned with nutation maneuvers, so that communication with earth is possible.

The tether will have to be broken shortly before mars orbit insertion, so the most important time in zero-G will be the time between mars orbit insertion and landing - and i think this time will be quite short.

But if the tether breaks...
