JSC2008-E-006033 (10 Jan. 2008) --- A joint project among NASA, the National Space Foundation and ILC Dover gets well underway at the McMurdoo Complex in Antarctica. Team members have just unloaded parts of the yet-to-be-deployed lunar habitat prototype. A little later, personnel with ILC Dover, the company that manufactured the prototype habitat, inflated it and fastened it securely to the ground. NASA and NSF are using Antarctica's frigid and isolated landscape to test a new architecture for astronaut housing on the moon.
