artifact description
This paper discusses habitability issues and design concepts which apply to large and small space stations. Special emphasis is placed upon opportunities and constraints posed by microgravity and upon special problems and needs associated with long-term isolation under confined conditions. Designed concepts are illustrated through photographs of drawings and models. (Many more are presented in the live talk than in this publication). Types of functional areas addressed include crew quarters, food preparation/dining areas, work areas, and exercise/recreation facilities.
