As many of you know, one of my research areas of interest is â€œSpace Logisticsâ€ and â€œInterplanetary Supply Chain Management.â€ We presented three papers a conference in April, and one of them (lead-author by Mke M) looked at Submarines as an analogy to long duration space missions.
NASA has another on-going missionÂ—NEEMO. This mission titled â€œNASA Extreme Environment Mission Operationsâ€ is â€œtesting concepts for future space exploration at an underwater laboratory off the coast of Florida. â€œ Itâ€™s a very interesting concept. Of course, NASAWatch, the blog dedicated to holding NASA to task, is concerned that NASA is ignoring this mission that they themselves have funded.
If anyone is interested in Space Logistics, shoot me a note.
