Abstract:

A steering group formed by the Committee on Human Factors was charged to identify the types of human factors research that, if funded and begun immediately, would be likely to produce results applicable to the evolutionary design of a National Aeronautics and Space Administration national space station to be launched in the 1990s. The steering group was instructed to consider human factors research relevant to such future space systems as the space station, lunar bases, and possibly interplanetary travel. The symposium, which was planned by the steering group and is reported in these proceedings, did indeed yield information applicable to future space systems. In addition, it provided information and offered insights of potential interest to many other civilian and military endeavors. It was our hope that this potential for transfer would occur.
