How does your indoor environment affect your well-being on Earth? What conditions need to be maintained in space to keep astronauts alive and well?
As we look forward to expanding space exploration into long-term, long-distance space travel and living, we need to understand how to monitor the impacts of environmental factors that sustain human health. In the Optimal Environmental Conditions for Life Action Project, students will explore how environmental conditions influence mental and physical health, and identify the best conditions for healthy living. This knowledge is important not only on Earth, but also on the International Space Station (ISS) and someday maybe even for a human colony on Mars!
