In-Situ Habitat Design on Mars

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.

This report examines the possibilities of using biocementation as an alternative method for coastal
protection. Biocementation is a sustainable solution for binding loose aggregate without the use of
cement. The use of biocementation in sand results in a product which we refer to as “biostone”.
This process uses the enzyme-producing bacteria Sporosarcina pasteurii with a urea-modified
nutrition broth and calcium, which combined creates a natural looking stone similar to naturally
produced sandstone.
