Raymond F. Loewy, Contributor to Spacecraft Design
November 5, 2013 marks the 120th birthday of the late industrial design pioneer Raymond F. Loewy. NASA consulted with Loewy through the late-sixties and early seventies to make manned spacecraft like Skylab's Orbital Workshop more comfortable for astronauts. Pictured here is a full-scale mock-up of a concept for an artificial-G, shuttle-compatible space station interior designed by Raymond Loewy/William Snaith, Inc., for a habitability working group at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. Look for documentation of Loewy's recommendations for NASA at NASA's Technical Reports Server (NTRS).
