NASA Partnering With Lockheed Martin To Build Deep Space Habitat Prototype

25 July 2017
SPACE reports that a cargo container made by Lockheed will be repurposed for deep space habitats. “Lockheed Martin announced it will refurbish the Donatello multi-purpose logistics module (MLPM), transforming...it from its original, unrealized role as a supply conveyor for the International Space Station to a test and training model of a living area for astronauts working beyond Earth orbit.” During the next two years, “Lockheed Martin will build upon its deep space habitat concept it developed during the first phase of NASA’s Next Space Technologies for Exploration Partnerships, or NextSTEP, program by using virtual and augmented reality prototyping in an effort to reduce costs and schedule, as well as identify and address issues while early in the design process.” The module could also be used as a deep space exploration gateway.  (Image Credit: NASA)
