3.4 m diameter x 5.8 m long (11.0 ft x 19.0 ft) with dual airlock compartments of 2.7 m and 3.0 m lengths (9.0 ft and 10.0 ft) used for human testing in a vacuum environment, and for Space Suit development.
Vacuum chamber with two airlocks, a rapid decompression chamber and removable bulkhead on the outerlock compartment.
7.6 m (25 ft) diameter x 7.9 m (26 ft) high test facility used for human testing in a vacuum environment, and for crewed space operations testing.
Located inside the 11-Foot Chamber outer airlock. The chamber allows the use of dual, elbow-length EMU arms and gloves for test operations and thermal vacuum conditions.
A human-rated, high fidelity, 1-g Airlock facility that provides flight-like simulation of Airlock and EVA operations in pressures ranging from vacuum to 1 atmosphere.
Next generation vehicle for space exploration.
Robonaut 2 (R2) is the first humanoid robot in space.
Morpheus is a vertical test bed demonstrating new green propellant propulsion systems and autonomous landing and hazard detection technology.
