This book examines the behavioural science aspects of living and working in space. Dr Harris examines the twin concepts of space ethos and synergy, underlining their vital importance in any extraterrestrial expansion. He analyzes the broader human dimensions of space exploration and development beyond the scientific and engineering considerations. He examines the emergence of a unique space culture in the orbital environment, taking into consideration the anthropological, sociological, psychological and living systems aspects, and also reviews the impact of organizational culture on space agencies and the aerospace industry, together with the influence of space technology and habitation upon the Earth's culture and peoples. As space-oriented activities increase, so the need for personnel other than scientific and technical staff increases. The book details a strategy for a space personnel deployment system, and reviews current NASA innovations in space management. A complete overivew of the challenges created by space industrialization, including commercial, legal and political ramification, ends this text.
