Yeah, there's that nagging little problem of "cryo-sleep" again. People have been trying that for nearly a century and it still doesn't work.
The artificial gravity part is pretty easy really, but cryo-sleep not so much.
Oh, and then there's that other minor issue of the Twin paradox. Once the star voyagers returned to Earth, the Earth would be minimally 836 years
older even though they had only been sleeping for 38 years. (and this is only if they stayed for 1 day)
Once again, proof that long distance inter-stellar space travel only holds value for the traveler, not those he leaves behind.
ETA - Nice post though, so S & F for that.
