CodeKitchen #13: Red Base | February 22, 2016

Taught by Bradley Camburn, Gilmour Space Technologies / SUTD-MIT International Design Centre

To endure long periods on the surface of mars, the systems of a habitat must be highly recyclable.

In this session, we will implement a hands on learning approach to provide insights into the following:

  1. key requirements of a (nearly) self-Sustaining Off-World habitat
  2. a basic understanding of design for systems
  3. storyboard of a system that enables recycling failed components of a (nearly) self-Sustaining Off-World habitat


Technologies: additive manufacturing, recycling, biological materials

Design methods: design systems innovation, mockup prototyping, ideation
