Human Factors So the Design of a Variable Gravity Research Facility 881076
NASA is considering a space based Variable Gravity Research Facility to study the biomedical effects and habitability of various gravity levels encountered as humans venture from Earth. This paper identifies the human factors in the design and use of the V6RF. This includes both the human studies that should be conducted in the VGRF and the design of the VGRF for human habitation. Designers must consider human factors early in the VGRF development to ensure its success.
