Space Simulation: A Symposium Held in New York City, New York May 1-3, 1972The National Aeronautics and Space Administration served as a cosponsor of the Sixth Space Simulation Symposium. These proceedings were published as a NASA Special Publication in order to give the participants and attendees of the conference a permanent record of the material presented and to make the technology of space simulation available to others who may find in this technology solutions to problems extant in their respective fields. Space exploration has posed the most challenging technical difficulties man has yet faced and solved. The technology evolved by the space program has relevance to many other fields, especially to the area of environment control and modification. This latter field promises to be one of extreme importance in this decade. The technology of space simulation has evolved many solutions to problems of a similar nature to those now affecting our environment. NASA is pleased to cooperate with the Institute of Environmental Sciences, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and the American Society for Testing and Materials in advancing the frontiers of knowledge in the important area of space simulation and to make these proceedings available to other areas of science and technology.
