Partnered with NASA, Sierra Space is developing habitats for missions related to moon and deeper space exploration, including Mars.
The LIFE habitat prototype is being developed for low earth orbits, on the lunar surface and as a crew transport vehicle to Mars.
The habitat while launched from a rocket will expand in orbit.
The habitat will include an Astro Garden System, an advance growth system, optimizing as much weight and power and space as possible.
It will provide astronauts with fresh food and also give scientists key data about growing food outside of earth. Photo credit: Sierra Nevada Corporation.
