Description

This facility simulates global atmospheric conditions by reducing ambient barometric pressure using vacuum pumps in combination with precise manipulation and control of temperature and relative humidity. The facility consists of a large (9.7 x 20.6 ft) and a small (9 x 12 ft) chamber, both connected to an airlock. It also includes a shower, toilet, and running water for sustained multiday periods of operation. The chambers can be controlled for pressure (sea level to 9,000 meters), temperature (-32°C to 43°C), and relative humidity (20% to 80%).
