Living and Working in Space: Habitat

Mar, like earth is in the goldilocks zone where planets can be habitable. How will NASA construct habitats to support extended human activity in space or on the Moon and Mars? How can NASA provide what is necessary for humans to maintain physical health and quality of life in space or on the Moon or Mars? These questions and more were answered in the two web seminars Living and Working in Space: Habitat. The presenters, all seasoned educators, talked about ecosystems, Mars and Mars exploration and living and working in extreme conditions. Participants were given information on efforts to construct habitats on the moon and mars for scientists and the current training in NOAA’s Aquarius facility. These Web Seminars are designed for grade 4-9 educators. To view the seminars see the archives and PowerPoint presentations.
