Description:

The hab-module#2 is a 'habitat-module' that can be equipped with anything from living-quarters, to full-fledged research-labs. Depending upon its internal configuration set-up, it can house up to approximately 16 people (although a crew less than 9 is recommended). The module supports continued module extension in 2 space-directions.

Pilots Operating Manual:

Major warnings:

None

 
Advisories:

Fuel is limited, so release or tug the module as close to its final location as safely possible and only use attitude thrust for final assembly-dock procedure.

Only execute 'killrot' command for emergencies.

 
Current list of 'proposed handling' for various scenarios:

T/O
As payload on launch vehicle
