Life Support Systems for Astronautical Spaceflight

Mr. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Claas Olthoff

Summary of the planned lecture
Rockets and spacesuits are the most visible elements of astronaut space missions, but the systems that keep astronauts not only alive, but healthy and productive, are arguably the most important. This presentation introduces life support systems for astronaut space missions and discusses the current state of the art, with a particular focus on the dynamic simulation of life support systems. An outlook will be given on future research activities at the Chair of Astronautics and Exploration and their relevance within the larger political and commercial environment in astronautical spaceflight.

Claas Olthoff
Claas Olthoff studied aerospace engineering at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and completed his doctorate at TUM in 2017 on the topic of "Dynamic simulation of spacesuits on the moon". He then spent three years as a research assistant at NASA's Johnson Space Centre in Houston, where he was involved in the development of a new spacesuit. After two years as a systems engineer at Airbus Defence and Space in Friedrichshafen, he was appointed Professor of Astronautics and Exploration at the Institute of Space Systems at the University of Stuttgart at the beginning of 2024.
