Human Engineering Applied to International Space Station Design 972400
Living and working aboard International Space Station will present the on-orbit crew with many challenges. A team from the Flight Crew Support Division at NASA's Johnson Space Center addresses human engineering and human interface concerns. These concerns are either low-level, such as how to best distinguish pushbuttons from indicators, or high-level, such as the delineation of habitability requirements for the Space Station's Habitation Module. Because the human engineering solutions provided by this team typically result in robust designs that enhance the flight crew's likelihood of success, crewmembers can be confident that the Space Station will be habitable and usable.
