A Design Pattern Language for Space Stations and Long- Term Residence Human Spacecraft

  title={A Design Pattern Language for Space Stations and Long- Term Residence Human Spacecraft},
  author={James D. Lowe},
The purpose of this paper is to present the beginnings of an architectural design pattern language for use in studying and designing space-based human habitats. At present, the space habitat pattern language consists of 60 patterns, arranged into 4 hierarchical categories, derived from the history of space-station designs ranging from Salyut 1 to Skylab, Mir, and the International Space Station. This paper discusses the pattern language and how it was derived, presents a selection of its…

Spacefaring: The Human Dimension
The stars have always called us, but only since the 1960s have we been able to respond by travelling in space. This book explores the human side of spaceflight: why people are willing to brave danger
Interpersonal and cultural issues involving crews and ground personnel during Shuttle/Mir space missions.
In future long-duration space missions, countermeasures should focus on providing support for crewmembers from a culture in the minority, and crews should include more than one representative from this culture.
