XLA -- The X-ray Large Array
The Naval Research Laboratory, Stanford University, and The University of Washington have proposed a large (100 square meters) array of X-ray detectors, called XLA, to be built at the...

Commercial Exploitation of Space Resources Under the `Moon Treaty'
The advancement of space technology over the last few decades has aroused in private enterprise an interest in exploiting space resources. The necessary legal structure regulating space...

The Missions and Supporting Elements Data Base - MSDB
NASA is developing and evaluating mission scenarios for a Lunar Base and manned missions to Mars. The Missions and Supporting Elements Data Base or MSDB was created to store science and...

Gas Recycling: A Bioregenerative Life Support System
The prospect of a lunar or earth-orbiting space station raises the question of life support for long periods of time with little or no support from earth. The cost of lifting supplies...

Objectives of a Space Station
A space station provides the next step in expanding human frontiers. The space station will produce certain short-term benefits as well as create a space infrastructure. Manned exploration...

Oxygen Production for a Future Lunar Base
This paper discusses various ways for providing oxygen for a lunar base. Currently, there are three methods available which are technologically possible. One of these is the use of chemical...

Solutions to Space Station Designs
Any space station that is to be designed for extended human use may require gravity. The artificial gravity field required can be produced by rotating the structure. As the Soviets have...

Potential Application of Space Station Technology in Lunar Bases and Manned Mars Missions
To meet the goals of its Space Station program, NASA is developing a large set of improved space systems capabilities. In areas such as power generation and distribution, on-board data...

Nuclear Electric Propulsion for Near-Term Space Missions
Potential uses of nuclear electric propulsion (NEP) for earth-orbit, lunar, and martian missions are analyzed. NEP systems allow a higher payload mass fraction than chemical systems. NEP...
