Mars Lab

A martian laboratory that is inflatable and fits into a standard 4x5m container used by usual transportation rockets. The idea is to use the rather limited space optimally. The pressure difference will help to pitch the tent like structures out of their capsules. Therefore only a minimal amount of machinery is needed. The outer shell are cladded with a special multilayered and nano-technology based airogel filled stretchable material. The arms have special drilling extensions to create a foundation.
