Italian Activities on Space Habitats Simulation 941357
UNDERLAB, now in an operational phase, is the first example of a new Italian activity on Space Simulation. The paper will present this project and the first isolation mission's results.
The activities related to Space architecture and Habitability, developed in Florence by FUTURO srl and University of Florence, will be implemented by 1995 with the organisation of International Space University Affiliate Campus for Space Architecture in Florence and the developing of a testing facility for Space habitability items, advanced subsystems hardware and human performance. The paper will present this project and some examples related to interdisciplinary research able to influence subsystems hardware and to develop new controlled environments for space habitats.
