Abstract:

This report contains preliminary information pertaining to a Three Astronaut Space System Experimental Laboratory, TASSEL. Space laboratory Tassel would utilize the boost capability of AtlasCentaur. Its purpose is primarily for conducting basic research in the biomedical and equipment evaluation sciences. Its early availability would enable it to fill the gap between the Mercury capsule experiments and the permanent space station. Beyond this period its usefulness would be limited to special short term research projects.
