Just pack the bulkheads with liberals. They’re cheap, denser than lead, and disposable.
“Models are all well and good, but there’s no substitute for data.” This guy needs to talk to the globull warming, excuse me, the climate change crowd.

.66 sv each way=66 rads. Plus another 100 probably on surface. You will likely die early from it, but that’s how it goes. Since it’s stretched out over years though, you probably won’t have any acute symptoms. It’s worse than most exposure, but honestly under 2 rad per hour for days on end won’t outright kill you. 200 at once yes, but this is talking over many many years.
I have always wondered how water would work as shielding. During long trips they are going to need to store adequate water to recycle. I imagine a double haul craft with water transferred in orbit before the long flight would be an option.
Use a lot of Demron, it is lightweight...
Forget Mars. We need to focus on earth for a while.
