Antonia is one of the younger members of the SATC. Currently in the second year of her bachelor’s degree, she found her passion for Space Architecture and its applications on Earth. After a term at the Glasgow School of Art and participating in the NASA/DLR Design Challenge 2020, Antonia discovered her calling in-between the Creative and the Technical and is now pursuing a degree in Technical Design, a combination of Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Design.
Antonia works at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and is part of the CHILL-ICE (Construction of a Habitat Inside a Lunar-analogue Lavatube in ICEland) Analogue Astronaut Mission, which is researching space habitat designs and their usability in lunar-analogue environments.
With the combination of creative designing and analytical engineering she wants to help enable humans to survive and live on other planets. Most importantly Antonia wants humanity to learn from living with the environmental restrictions on extraterrestrial bodies in order to implement a more sustainable life here on Earth.
