One of the (many) things that are infrequently covered in science fiction is the reality of space travel. As science fiction readers, we don’t let reality get in the way of a good story. We just go with it, and assume that things like the mind-boggling distances, gravity and lack thereof, and the physical hazards of flying around in the vast openness of space.
As an author, I think about things like that, and try to hypothesize how some of these (extremely gargantuan) obstacles might be overcome.
