Future space explorers will require some training to live and work in space, but nothing close to the advanced training and educational programs astronauts currently confront. Missions will be varied, and the people assigned to those missions will most often be strangers to one another other with different goals and motivations.

Teague has collaborated with publicly funded agencies like NASA, as well as private space companies, and aerospace OEMs for years. Our specialized expertise in designing for space, including a deep understanding of current users and future use cases, makes us uniquely qualified to conceptualize a preferred future for living and working in space.

Design drivers for mission success.

From manufacturing to mining, medicine, and beyond, the work being done in space will be as varied as the workforce is diverse. With improving mission outcomes as our top priority, we centered our work on user goals rather than preferences. Three key design drivers with mission performance indicators emerged.

Designing for flexibility, scale, and ease of adaptive use; anticipating future needs/use cases.

Leaning into emerging technology such as cloud computing (on edge in this case) and augmented reality to create intuitive and unbound interfaces.

Cultivating and nurturing human strengths; designing purposefully for human thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to help users build a life of meaning and purpose.
