'Space,' as the term is used here, could be said to be the external habitat of the space colony, when viewing the colony as an organizm. The internal environment, or the anatomy and physiology, is described here as 'Matter.'





What are the internal conditions of the colony that must be controlled to allow life to persist, whatever the external conditions?

space, gravity, energy, temperature, radiation, food, water, air, light, shelter, etc.




How do the living and nonliving components of the colony work together?

biosphere, ecosystem, community, population, organism, life support




The human element is a primary component of the entire system with its own internal structures.

family, education, art, religion, philosophy, science, industry, services, economy, government




The technological, social, and living systems support human lifestyles and needs within the colony.

personal, social, emotional, spiritual, physical, mental, organizational, recreational, occupational, educational




A special set of technologies may be needed to pull this process off.

software, VR, simulation, AI, a-life, robotics, biotech, nanotech, space tech, etc.
