Good idea. Of course, the second season sounds much more exciting:) There might also be another more serious problem related to the 1st season - I wonder will there be zero gravity conditions during the trip to Mars (like in an ISS) or will they try to simulate it in some way, maybe there is a momentum from the engines that works a bit like gravity (sorry I don't know enough about this and googling it seems to be not the easiest topic either 0_o), because if there will, they would have to produce this on Earth for the whole time, which would be way too complicated if possible at all..

I found this related info: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2017/11/01/humans-may-need-fake-gravity-reach-mars-without-brain-damage/

That link is behind a paywall. They wouldn't be able to test in zero gravity for the first season. There's still plenty they could learn like psychological aspects, suitability for so many people, etc

I've managed to read it all by taking screenshots. Sometimes slower internet might be of use:D It's nothing special, simply about long exposures to microgravity being proven to have serious health effects and that this should be sorted out before taking humans and especially civilians to Mars.
