Abstract:
It is certain that in future space missions such as long-term stationing in a lunar base, the need for comfortable living quarters, quality varied meals, as well as exercise or sports, will become critically important for the crew's mental and physical well-being. Future lunar crews with clearly defined functions and tasks to be performed as part of a daily routine will have many hours of leisure time to spend reading, listening to music, watching TV or engaging in artistic activities including painting and playing musical instruments. This paper reports on the crew's needs for lunar base life in terms of food, clothing, housing, communication, and mental and physical requirements. We have divided each of these items, or sectors, into three parts; namely, basal life, passive pursuits, and active pursuits. It is our belief that human needs develop to a higher degree of freedom and options as the requirements expand from basal life to passive pursuits, and to active pursuits.
