Application of Architectural Proportioning Systems in the Design of Living Spaces for an Initial Mars Habitat 961469

This paper will demonstrate design of a Mars transit/surface habitat, beginning with composition of the private living spaces, using established proportioning systems. The living spaces will be used as basis for the overall design of a habitation module transported to low Earth orbit individually by a Shuttle type vehicles, or as a fully integrated spacecraft in an Energiya class HLLV. The high degree of order achieved will enable full assimilation of all systems necessary to sustain six crew members for approximately 1000 days and provide living space greater than that currently recommended for long duration missions.
