The Life Science & Evolution Division
The Biology Group
Conducts research into the effect on biological systems in space and in particular the effect on humans during deep space missions. This also includes the effect on human evolution from living in a low micro-gravity environment over many generations.
Space Medicine Group
The Space Medicine Group explores techniques, processes and solutions for solving human illness related problems in space. This also includes emergency medicine in a remote environment from Earth.
The Exobiology Group explores the possibility of life forms existing external to the Earth. This may be on other planets, in comets or other hostile environments. Its research encompasses predictive biological evolution for different environments, bacteria in hostile conditions and the emergence of intelligent life elsewhere.
Artificial Habitats Group
The Artificial Habitats Group explores the design and construction of space stations or planetary/lunar stations which are capable of holding human populations. The designs are linked to human fundamental requirements
Natural Habitats Group
The Natural Habitats Group studies moons, planets or other objects that are capable of holding a human population. Artificial Intelligence Group The Artificial Intelligence Group studies advanced computing and other intelligent architectures, the coupling between technology and humans, and the emergence of artificially intelligent machines.
