As Humanity we are living a special time, a change of era. One day of God ends and a new Eighth Day begins.
Space design has opened the doors to the international community of architects, industrial designers, and engineers for the creation of blueprints for orbital stations around Earth, the Moon, and Mars in principle, as well as habitats, bases, and cities on extraterrestrial territory.
It includes construction of launch facilities, payload design for each mission, simulated microgravity tests, design and construction of habitats in extraterrestrial environments, systems engineering, life support, control support for space missions.
Designs must respond to high levels of radiation, low or no atmospheric pressure, low or no apparent gravity, strong temperature variations, oxygen capacity, drinking water, and food. As a priority, the habitats to be built must protect their inhabitants in every possible way.
A space designer must master the specific knowledge field of aerospace science and be able to develop effective prototypes.
