It'd be great if astronauts could lie down in a rocket, take a little nap, and wake up on Mars, but we haven't been able to reach the dream of suspended animation--where space-travelers can stay unconscious but healthy--yet.And we're still a ways off. But NASA is giving money to aerospace firm SpaceWorks Engineering to imagine what that future might look like, providing "an end-to-end Mars mission architecture" for the project. That pod you see would be the "torpor-inducing transfer habitat," i.e. the place where you doze off until Mars. The future looks... cramped.
