Comparisons Between Space Facilities and Earth-Based Analogs

by Jason Klassi, Design Science Int, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering, Construction, and Operations in Space

Abstract: This presentation will focus on the design of planetary bases and space stations as based on comparative designs for facilities in analogous harsh and isolated environments here on Earth. We will examine the design of several earth-based systems drawing comparisons applicable to the design of systems in space. The foundation behind all of these designs is a science-oriented approach which strives to create a balance between the human factors, economic and technological issues.
