Join Interstellar Seminar from 2:30 to 3:20 p.m. Wednesday, March 27 104 Jabara Hall or online as Grant Anderson, founder and leader of Paragon Space Development Corporation, talks about living in space.

Long-duration crewed missions require closed-loop life support systems to provide breathable air and palatable nutritious food. Everything must be closely recycled since there may be no chance of resupply for decades. Spacecraft architecture must be comfortable and protected from the harsh space environment.

A visionary engineer and entrepreneur, Anderson has worked on crewed missions from the Shuttle program to the International Space Station and is now developing the Gateway station that will orbit the Moon.
