Atmospheric pressure is a variable that has been often manipulated in the trade space surrounding the design and engineering of space exploration vehicles and extraterrestrial habitats. Low pressures were used to reduce structural engineering and launch mass throughout the early human space program; moreover, low pressures will certainly be considered in future concepts for the same reasons. Fundamental understanding of the biological impact of low pressure environments is therefore critical… CONTINUE READING
