Welcome to the Laboratory. Each half of the habitat should have an area specifically for maintaining the crew health. This single section is a standard sixteen (16) foot outside diameter with six (6) inch thick walls (fifteen (15) foot inside diameter). It is designed to convert to an operating suite and can be used for other tasks. The center can be used for exercise, to perform dental needs and routine health testing. This is part of a working area that is normally isolated by pressure walls from the living/social area of the craft.

The physical, electrical and chemical testing benches, chemical resistant counter top and normal testing equipment is located in this area. There are standard power plugs in appropriate locations to allow the flexibility of new test setups. This area can be used to repair equipment as required over the long voyage.

The wastewater recovery system treatment and batteries for electric generation are located in the lower portion of this area. The water circulation system may be required when the habitat is not rotating.

Technical data: The atmosphere is air standard content though less nitrogen is expected, temperature is 72 F and humidity is 50% typically, Lighting for moderate laboratory work = 75 to 100 (variable) lm/ft2, Hall/room lighting = 30 lm/ft2, 900 BTU/man-hr. for moderate active work.

See [Data] for the design calculations.
