dc.description.abstract Covers subjects ranging from engineering analyses of space transportation networks and planetary surface outposts to legal, sociological, and public policy discussions related to space program initiatives over the next few decades. Scientists proposed experiments suited for a manned lunar space base; designers suggested architectural concepts and construction techniques for planetary surface habitats; and bioengineers reviewed the essential elements of biologically based, regenerative life support systems. en
