IOE 836 Seminar: University of Michigan Bioastronautics and Life Support Systems (BLiSS)
WHEN: September 15, 2017 12:00 pm-1:00 pm
Title: Human Performance and Operations Design for the Mars Habitat Challenge
Bio: BLiSS is a student research team dedicated to expanding humanity into space through researching the technologies needed to keep people alive, safe and comfortable up there. We are actively working on several NASA sponsored research projects in the areas of life support systems, plant growth, and habitation.
Abstract: The University of Michigan Bioastronautics and Life Support Systems (BLiSS) research group proudly presents a once in a lifetime opportunity, the Mars Habitat Challenge! This is a 2 semester project to design a dual-purpose deep space habitat that can be used both in space and on the Martian surface. During this seminar BLiSS members will introduce the projects, its goals, and the human factors, ergonomics, and operational issues that will be part of the habitat's design. BLiSS will also showcase ways for passionate IOE students to receive credit for working on this project.
