Humans Living and Working in Space - The Interrelated Aspects of Physiology, Psychology, Human Factors and Life Support 1999-01-2100

To successfully exist in space, the goal of system designers today must be to provide an environment where current and future travelers may work efficiently and effectively over longer and longer periods of time.
