Human space exploration is dangerous at all levels. After more than fifty years of humans traveling from Earth to space, the risk of space flight is similar to that of climbing Mount Everest.
Space is an unforgiving environment where a small mistake or accident can result in large failure, injury, and death. Every component must work perfectly. Every system (and its backup) must function without fail or human life is at risk.
With advances in technology, shared experience between space agencies, what was once a one-shot endeavor becomes routine and space travel does become more viable.
Each program participant will be issued an environmental suit capable of shielding them from the harsh extremes of space. The suit does has a limit to how much it can endure, please pay attention to its data readouts and any warnings it may issue.
The general architecture layout and the interior design are some of the most important features which will not only provide general safety, but will also create a comfortable and enjoyable living environment.
The outpost architecture consists of six lander modules and two elongated inflatables. The main area is inside the inflatables, providing approximately 200 square meters for daily living and food production.
The two centered lander modules will provide access technology to the alien worlds and the four remaining lander modules will mainly contain subsystems supporting the entire outpost.
The interior design fullfills the needs of both the everyday tasks and the entire life cycle for a human being and crew. Additionally, it must also comply with the requirements of allowed mass and volumes to be transported and later “unfolded” inside the outpost.
A great deal of flexibility has to been integrated into the interior design, making changes possible for special occasions or new situations in life.
