    Artificial gravity tether

    One of the health problems mentioned in the manned trip to mars is zero G. Has SpaceX thought about tethering ship noses together and spinning up 2+ ships to create a desired g force during the trip? How many rpm's vs circumference of rotation would be acceptable health wise. How long a tether in other words..... given the coriolis forces acting horizontally on passengers.
