WHERE: Pila, Poland, Hangar 11
DESTINATION: Extreme research space
TIME: From 2018

In September 2018 I was a commander of an analog space mission in Habitat LunAres which is an isolated station for astronauts reflecting at a scale of 1:1 the International Space Station (ISS)

LunAres Research Station was created in the area of Piła as a specialist venue for simulating crewed space missions to the Moon and Mars. In September 2018 was the 9th Mission L.E.A.R.N during which I carried out an audit of the Habitat acting in the role of crew commander. 

In April 2019 the Control Mission was appointed. The mission members were the Habitat’s co-owner Leszek Orzechowski and a psychologist of the European Space Agency (ESA) Thomas Van Caelenberg. Together we discussed the new layout of the base. Changes in the Habitat’s design were implemented according to the audit’s recommendations and were finalised in 2021.

Watch this short video to find out about my responsibilities as commander of an analog space mission and what the challenges are of living in isolation, not just on board of the Habitat space station:

You can find more specialistic knowledge on the subject of designing and optimising the Habitat’s space in the below article:

This text summarises the work on making the LunAres building compatible with the rules of the balanced development by presenting a solution in the form of a modern hygienic module based on the system of collecting, purifying and reusing of grey water.

To jeden z częstych tematów, które poruszam podczas biznesowych wystąpień. Prawie wszyscy, chcemy wiedzieć jakie kluczowe wyzwania czekają człowieka w przyszłości.
