Building and developing space-inspired villages on earth, the Paris-based Interstellar Lab aims to design prosperous life both on earth and beyond. Taking cues from the climate and characteristics of Mars, the lab has since set plans for a long-term project to create the environment controlled systems and life support technologies necessary for regenerative life.
The company combines architecture, engineering, product design and science, in collaborations with international scientific-research universities and institutes – garnering a well-rounded understanding of environmental science, agriculture, biochemistry, geophysics, biophysics, planetary sciences, anthropology, as well as, psychology.
With this knowledge, the Interstellar Lab proudly presents its first closed-loop village project on earth. The Experimental Bio-Regenerative Station’s (EBIOS) water treatments and plant growth systems are a collaborative effort between the lab and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), making it a self-sustaining, carbon neutral village that can accommodate over 100 inhabitants within its interlocking domes.
Located strategically in the Mojave Desert, the conditions of the EBIOS intend to replicate those on Mars, helping to acclimatize astronauts during training, and facilitate closer-to-home research. Open to both science professionals and the general public, the EBIOS serves as a hospitality and research center for families, students and young children with a keen interest in the future of society.
With the rapidly intensifying threat of global warming and human-extinction looming overhead – the EBIOS serves as phase one in Interstellar Lab’s long-term goal of creating solutions to water-recycling, food production, waste management, nature preservation and future settlement on Mars and the Moon. The physical development of the Experimental Bio-Regenerative Station will begin in 2021, and will not be accessible upon completion, to the public for the first six months.
