The Journal of Life Support and Biosphere Science (LS&B Science) is designed to meet the needs of an emerging field of study necessitated by the innate human interest in exploration. As mankind stretches the limits of environmental understanding in space, under the sea, and in harsh Earth environments, new lessons are learned which affect our daily travels on Spaceship Earth.
Small spacecraft and submarines have used physical/chemical measures to recycle clean air and fresh water and principles of these small, unforgiving systems are directly applicable to understanding life support on Earth. As plants are added and biospheric systems become large, basic concepts of cycling of elements and the importance of biodiversity have direct implications for issues of global warming, the protection of endangered species, and clean water requirements. LS&B Science provides a forum for the sharing of these concepts among diverse groups, bringing the issues of Earth in touch with the issues of Space.
Advanced Life Support systems, EVA, Thermal Control Systems, Planetary/Undersea/Earth Habitats, Life Sciences, Environmental Control systems, Closed Environmental Life Support Systems (CELSS), Closed Ecology Experiment Facilities (CEEF) and Bio-regenerative systems.
The Journal covers a spectrum from news and event summaries to peer reviewed technical articles, and contains papers from the leading conferences in this field from around the world. LS&B Science meets the needs of scientists working in this field, and those interested in the design and manufacture of air and water systems, and for people responsible for educating the public about developments and insights from this field.
Now in its 6th Year! The refereed Journal for closed environmental air-water systems serving the research, scientific and industry world-wide in the fields of:
Space and Undersea Life support
Heating, Venting, and Air Conditioning
Municipal Power, Water, Waste
With applications in:
Water/Air Reclamation Using Physical/Chemical systems
Water & Air Monitoring
Indoor Gardens for Educational and Research Facilities
Undersea and Polar Habitats
Closed Systems Test Beds
“It is my expectation that this new journal will enable researchers in life support systems, biospheric research, and other related areas to share results and pose further questions that will motivate continues progress in our undertanding of both natural and artificial environmental systems.”
John D. Rummel, Ph.D.
Acting Deputy Chief,
Mission from Planet Earth Study Office, NASA
“It is my hope that the journal, LS&B Science, will provide a scientific and engineering forum for publication of information regarding the role of the terrestrial biosphere in Earth processes, particularly projected global climate change.”
Robert K. Dixon, Leader,
Global Mitigation and Adaptation Program,
“My experience on Salyut taught me the importance of man living with machine. This Journal could do many good things by discussing this relationship.”
Cardiologist and Cosmonaut
“This new journal will indeed fulfill the role of a rigorously peer-reviewed journal in the area of life support systems and biospherics which is very much needed.”
Donald L. Henninger, Ph.D.,
Chief Scientist for Regerative Life Support Systems,
