In Situ Resource Utilization in Support of Manned Space Exploration

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

In Situ Resource Utilization in Support of Manned Space Exploration
The research conducted under this fellowship will focus on analyzing methods for utilizing In Situ Resources in support of Manned Space Exploration. Examples of this include how to manage resources on the Moon to support extended human exploration by minimizing the amount of resources needed to be launched from Earth. A special focus will be on a detailed task analysis of what is required to set up, activate and maintain the ISRU facility. We will then determine how most efficiently to divide the various tasks between robots and humans. More »
