Title Human Health/Human Factors Considerations in Trans-Lunar Space.
Publication Date May 2014
Media Count 19p
Personal Author E. C. Moore G. Mendeck R. Howard
Abstract The human factors insights of how they are incorporated into the vehicle are crucial towards designing and planning the internal designs necessary for future spacecraft and missions. The adjusted mission concept of supporting the Asteroid Redirect Crewed Mission will drive some human factors changes on how the Orion will be used and will be reassessed so as to best contribute to missions success. Recognizing what the human factors and health functional needs are early in the design process and how to integrate them will improve this and future generations of space vehicles to achieve mission success and continue to minimize risks.
