Abstract:
An initial study for an Advanced Kind Of Shower (AKOS) has attempted to define the need and advantages, as well as develop a concept, for an astronaut's shower. Relying on past studies, on flight experiences, and on the ensuing critiques, and building on an interdisciplinary approach, the study defined a modular piece of equipment that - using parts inspired by commercially- available products - that for the first time could satisfy different functions for the hygiene, well-being, and health support of the crew members.
