Interview
Wieviel Architektur braucht man im All

Mai, 2014
Interview mit Florian Aigner, TU Wien

“Was würden wir am meisten vermissen, wenn wir uns auf eine jahrelange, beschwerliche Reise zu einem fremden Planeten machen würden? Die Schwerkraft der Erde? Die Möglichkeit, eine Runde um den Wohnblock zu laufen? Soziale Kontakte? Bei langen Weltraummissionen ist nicht nur eine verlässlich funktionierende Technik entscheidend, auch das psychische und soziale Wohlbefinden der Menschen an Bord wird zur Überlebensfrage. Daher braucht man in Raumfahrzeugen oder in künftigen Behausungen auf dem Mond oder am Mars gute, durchdachte Architektur.“
