Learn about the development strategies and design challenges that must be considered when locating and building lunar habitats. Discover how transportation systems, site selection, and environmental factors influence the shape, size, and growth of lunar bases. Additional topics covered include human factors in lunar gravity, logistical supply, and crew rotation.
In this new online course you will learn about the development strategies and design challenges of locating and building lunar habitats. Space Architects present material on how the transportation system, site selection, and environmental factors influence the shape, size, and growth of lunar bases.
The emphasis is on designing for human occupation of our closest neighbor. There is discussion of different approaches to site improvement, proximity to landing zones, solar and nuclear electrical power options, and radiation protection. Furthermore, the architectural accommodations for EVA and rovers are presented.
This course offers methods of integrating, maintaining, and upgrading habitat subsystems. Each of the subsystems are described with particular focus on the Environmental Control Life Support system, Crew Systems, and Health Maintenance systems. In addition, studies and design concepts for accommodating human factors in lunar gravity are presented. In order to sustain habitat operations, the approaches for logistic resupply and crew rotation are discussed.
