Roveroma

Dining experience for long-duration space travel

sensory - smell - memories - taste - food - utensils - health - shared - joy - experience

PURPOSE

The idea is to re-imagine how current systems are functioning and uncover new leveraging points to develop them as  "Experiences."

 

The current way of life and living standards of astronauts is geared toward surviving space.

 

The project was designed keeping the objective in mind of making life in space not just survive, but to thrive. As the research phase progressed, three inquires started to emerge: physiological changes in the human body, the use of space-specific equipment rather than bringing earthly devices into space as makeshifts, and the effect of isolation.

MOTIVE

Human-centered design will play an important role in counterbalancing the machine-centric approach that has dominated the space design process for decades. A 'comfortable' ride will become more and more important with the
advent of deep space missions due to
longer duration missions.
