Safe Haven
European manned space station. Study 2000. The ATV could evolve towards an unmanned free-flying laboratory providing a better microgravity level than the ISS.

Status: Study 2000. Gross mass: 19,000 kg (41,000 lb). Height: 11.00 m (36.00 ft). Diameter: 4.45 m (14.59 ft). Span: 22.30 m (73.10 ft).

It could periodically dock to the ISS for major servicing support. Such a free flying pressurized spacecraft could also be used as a safe haven for an entire ISS crew in case of a major emergency on-board the Station. That would give time for a crew to survive until they are rescued by a Soyuz or other vehicle.

Crew Size: 6. Habitable Volume: 48.00 m3.



Family: Space station. Country: Europe. Launch Vehicles: Ariane 5. Agency: ESA, Cannes.
