Deep sleep for Mars mission...
I saw an article on this on CNN.

Apparently China has done some work on putting people into torpor for up to two weeks at a time. The article goes on to describe a mission using a two week hibernation cycle.

Personally I'd like to get trip time to Mars down to at least three months (which some developments in RL might do) and then combine it with something like this to reduce life support and other needs.
