Scientists are developing a deep space habitat for NASA that can protect astronauts for a long time.
Continuously perform tasks by providing critical communications, life support, and autonomous navigation.

Headquartered in NASA, Lockheed Martin designed a deep-sea habitat for NASA at the Kennedy Space Center.
The prototype will integrate evolving technologies to keep astronauts safe on board and operate the spacecraft autonomously while unmanned.
NASA recently awarded Lockheed Martin a Phase 2 contract to explore the next space technology for partnership (next step) habitat research.
As part of Phase 2, the team will continue to refine the design philosophy developed in phase 1 and work with NASA to identify key system requirements for deep space gateways.
The team will build a complete
Scale habitat prototype and next in NASA\'s Kennedy Space Center Space Station Processing Facility-
A new generation of deep space avionics integrated laboratory near Johnson Space Center.
Bill Pratt, project manager for next step at Lockheed Martin said: \"When you live at home, it\'s easy to take things for granted, but the recently selected astronauts will face unique challenges.
\"When you\'re not in low Earth orbit, it\'s totally different to simply call your family.
\"While building this habitat, we have to operate with a different mindset that is more akin to long-distance Mars trips to ensure that we protect their safety, health and productivity,\" Pratt said. A full-
Will build a scale prototype of deep space habitat by renovating Donatello-
Logistics Module (MPLM ).
Donatello is one of three large modules flying in the space shuttle payload cabin for the transfer of cargo to the International Space Station.
The team will also rely heavily on hybrid reality prototypes that use virtual reality and augmented reality.
With this approach, the team can reduce costs and progress and identify and solve problems early in the design phase.
\"We are pleased to work with NASA to redesign a historic flying hardware originally designed for exploration of low Earth orbit, to play a role in the process of humans entering deep space, Pratt said.
\"Leveraging existing capabilities will be the guiding philosophy for Lockheed Martin to minimize development time and meet NASA\'s affordability goals,\" he said . \".
This work will be carried out over 18 months and will build on the conceptual research carried out in the first phase.
The second phase will also focus on mixed reality and rapid prototyping and will focus on concept refinement and risk reduction.
These results will further understand the systems, standards, and common interfaces required for deep space life.
