The history of U. S. spacecraft Crew Quarters and Personal Hygiene Systems is traced from the time of the early space capsules through the present day Shuttle. Brief descriptions of these accommodations are provided. Design goals are defined for the Space Station Freedom Crew Quarters and Personal Hygiene so that the successes, or failures of each step of the space program can be compared and our progress thus measured.
The Space Station Freedom requirements and preliminary design efforts for these facilities are described to considerable depth. Particular emphasis is given to sleeping arrangements and equipment of the Crew Quarters and the commode-urinal, zero gravity handwasher, and the zero gravity shower of the Space Station. Concerns and issues are discussed and an overview or summary is provided.
