Establishing a Permanent Exo-Earth Terrestrial Base
This proposal is specifically designed to outline the requirements of a future exo-planetary mission to Mars. The root exo- in this research refers to the region outside of Low- or Medium-Earth Orbit... More > that is generally used for current space missions; thus a lunar or Martian surface-base would satisfy this requirement. The proposal focuses on the human factors, including psycho-social behaviors and space medicine; technical requirements, such as life support and communications systems; and mission planning/execution components of a long-duration space mission. Furthermore, the study will analyze the potential future applications of an exo-planetary surface-base in terms of commerce, defense and exploration, including a near-future space tourism.< Less
