Lighting design for interplanetary environments

Presentation date: 26. October
Presentation time: 15:15

This study is about lighting design for interplanetary environments, primarily for a journey to Mars. The main priority is the improvement of crew members’ health and performance during this journey in the spacecraft and in their base on Mars – the habitat. The presentation will touch on a new challenge for lighting designers: the support of astronauts. However, the findings of the study can also be applied to applications on Earth, such as underground spaces, long-distance flights, night-time shift workers, and those suffering from seasonal affective disorder.
