Abstract

An effective and self-sustainable artificial habitat design is essential for human spaceflight and expansion of mankind into orbit or towards other celestial bodies. Besides the necessity to create an artificial habitat for the extreme environments of space, development of a self-sustainable habitat can also enable more effective exploration of extreme environments on Earth. One major application of the habitat’s closed-loop capabilities can also be in enabling ecological habitation of human populations, not exclusively, but especially in megacity areas with limited resources. This could reduce pollution, desertification and be a possible solution for difficulties arising due to human overpopulation. Although the theory of closed-loop habitats has been the subject of many research campaigns, the practical implementation and realisation within a real habitat still needs to be established. The poster deals with the interdisciplinary DLR study of a terrestrial Facility of Laboratories for Sustainable Habitation (FLaSH). This first DLR habitat design workshop has been held in DLR’s Concurrent Engineering Facility (CEF) of the Institute of Space Systems. By the help of domains such as Air, Water, Waste, Green-house, Animal, Food Processing, Human Factors, Living, Sickbay, ISRU, Workshop, Design and Configuration, a scenario of selected habitat modules with input and output relationships has been set up.
