Hedratecture and Artificial Gravity
There is a need, according to the National Commission On Space, to develop three critical space facilities: A Space Base, A Variable-Gravity Research Facility, and a Lunar Surface Outpost....

Working on the Moon: The Apollo Experience
Work experience gained during the Apollo missions suggests that lunar base productivity can be enhanced through careful attention to suit design, repair capabilities, equipment design...

Level of Recycling Effectiveness
