It's my perception that discussions of the use of artificial gravity for manned deep-space travel missions are primarily centered on avoiding bone loss. Am I right so far? Microgravity seems to be fairly agreeable to most of the popular reports and YouTube videos, except possibly for issues of sleep difficulty, loss of some sensation of taste of food, and potential eyesight degradation.
I think the idea is that bones that do not experience "normal" regiments of strain will start to loose calcium. Is the idea behind the discussions of artificial gravity for long missions that it will help reproduce this type of strain to the bones?
Does each bone need to experience strain separately - is it localized, or is it more systemic. Put bluntly, will straining my tibia reduce decalcification of my ulna?
