MARS Technical Specs

January 18, 2000.

Our next set of renderings will be available shortly.

Only a few details are made available at this time. As progress on the habitat continues we'll post more details.

The core element of the MARS Project is the habitat unit. Measuring approximately 8.4 metres (27ft) in diameter, the habitat unit will provide 2 floors of living space for up to 6 people at a time. The habitat is designed as a multi-function facility incorporating living an sleeping quarters, work spaces, clean-room laboratories, an exercise area, galley and a sick bay.

The two decks of the unit will be linked by a central shaft and ladder, which will also connect to the main airlock in the lower deck. The lower deck of the unit will also provide storage facilities.
