In-Situ Habitat Design on Mars

Advisors & Mentors


In this report we study the isolation in habitats on Mars from society on Earth. We try to
understand the construct of micro-societ and identify physical and
psychological implications for astronauts. Through this knowledge, previous simulation and
analogue research, empirical research, and analysis we try to learn how these habitats
must be designed in order to facilitate the crew’s work and well-being in the Martian
environment. Simultaneously we try to understand how in-situ construction with
MICP can create interesting alternatives to designing Mars habitats.
