Abstract:

Located in cis-lunar space, the station assures the capability to dock and resupply spacecraft; it provides a multidirectional supply link between the Moon and Earth serving as a base for potential science and research missions. Finally, it represents a next step in deep space exploration following the decommissioning of the International Space Station. This report has been written as part of the Space Settlement Design Workshop at IRS, Stuttgart.
