Micro-G-Architecture - A Transdisciplinary Education, Research and Product Development Project for Engineers and Architects 2000-01-2328
In 1998 the Institute of Architecture and Product Development, led by Professor Richard Horden at the University of Technology Munich started a 1 year program in Space Architecture for architecture students. Together with the University's department of Astronautics and NASA's outreach program, the team worked on designs for the Habitation Module of the International Space Station. Impressed by the high quality of design work, NASA offered the group parabolic flights on KC 135, to test selected hardware.
The hardware of a table, a shower, a bed and a storage system were tested successfully under microgravity conditions in October 1999.
