MACEM lunar habitat

This project was designed during the Between Spacetech and Greentech Workshop, with engineering students Sedef Gucu and Mika Randrianarison. The main objective was to design a two-weeks self-sufficent 75m2 habitat for four occupants.
The module consists in a cylindrical volume that has the ability to extend and double its volume by inflating its flexible walls with water. As the hydrogen contained in the stored water serves as a anti-radiation shield, algaes are used as a mean to recycle grey waters into drinkable water, and CO2 into O2. This concept was inspired from Marc Cohen’s Water Wall project and the S.H.E.E. project led by Ondrej Doule.
