Abstract: This book includes over 100 papers providing in-depth discussions of space policy, extraterrestrial basing, space stations and orbiting structures, and areas of special interest. Outposts and operations on the moon, Mars, or other extraterrestrial bodies, necessitate the investigation of environments and the means of engineering and constructing facilities and performing operations in these locations. Papers in the extraterrestrial basing section deal with the engineering, construction, and operations challenges faced in development of bases and operations on extraterrestrial bodies. In the space station and orbiting structures section, papers discuss the engineering, construction, and operations of orbiting space systems. The special interest section provides a discussion of challenges facing us in meeting needs for space powwer, life support, human factors, astronomy, education, and management. Engineering applications in special environments on Earth, such as in deep water or arctic regions, are compared to anticipated environments in space.
