Lunar Iron Project Update 43

Update - Still working!

Hi there. Just wanted to let you know I’m still working on this project.

Work on the project today:

  • Still working on the Atmospheric Pressure and Composition page. I’m getting closer, I promise! I added the Fire risk and Leakage sections, as well as several breathing gas mixes. I also updated a bunch of stuff throughout the document. I’ve already ruled out any atmosphere consisting of 100% oxygen, Skylab’s atmosphere, and one standard atmosphere. The first two are due to health and safety risks being too high. The last is because it’s not necessary and a bit wasteful. Tomorrow I’m going to tackle 78% N/21% O atmospheres at various altitudes. I also just found an interesting paper assessing various atmospheres for Constellation vessels.
