Interstellar Lab’s Ebois has been designed as a prototype for life on Mars and functions as a scientific research and astronaut training centre.
Ebois. The word may sound alien now, but is likely to become more commonplace. It is in fact an acronym that stands for Experimental Bioregenerative Station.
An Ebois is a closed-loop controlled environment – the kind you might see colonising Mars – that is built on earth using space technologies.
A company called Interstellar Lab has been pioneering these controlled life support solutions in anticipation of life on other planets. But perhaps their model can help us solve for Earth, first?
