This paper deals with a few of the important problem areas involved in a long duration manned space flight. Some of the problems discussed in detail that will be encountered in an extended space voyage are space vehicle maintenance and extra-vehicular activities, visual skill performance, and manual and automatic control of spacecraft systems.
Although some of these areas have been studied in the Mercury and Gemini programs, additional testing must be undertaken before successful extended manned spaceflights can be carried out.
