THE ENDURANCE: A VERTICAL LUNAR HABITAT

My role: UX Researcher , UX Designer, 3D modeler

Over the course of 30 days, four astronauts will work to explore the Shackleton crater on the Lunar South Pole. 
Their mission is to perform regolith and biological science, understand the effects of lunar gravity on human performance, assess the potential of the location as a future lunar outpost, and to prepare for future missions to Mars.

Human-Centered Design in Space

Our priority while designing this habitat was to create a positive experience for the people who will inhabit it. By addressing human needs the endurance habitat will allow its crew to be at their best while working and exploring.
