It has been suggested that the design of the last NASA reference mission for the human exploration of Mars is lacking sufficient considerations for human factors and human machine interactions. The NASA team examined many different options, long or short stay, chemical or nuclear thermal propulsion, pre-deploy or all-up, in situ resource utilization (ISRU)(More)
Numerous scenarios have been proposed for a human mission to Mars. The crew size is typically between three and six astronauts. According to experts in human factors, a crew of three is possible but a crew of six is more appropriate. However, it is shown in this paper that the impact of the number of astronauts on the design, the risks, and the cost of the(More)
This paper presents the results of an experiment conducted that aim at bringing natural and easiest, the interaction between the occupants of a green building and the building itself. The true challenge is to create buildings that can be understood and used in an optimal way without adding new constraints and reducing comfort of the user. We've based our(More)

Some major risks-of-failure issues for the future manned missions to Mars are addressed. The specific complexity of the mission with the necessity of new and important technological developments has considerable implications in terms of risk estimation and management. The latest NASA reference mission is addressed and is commented on. It is concluded that(More)
