A mobile space laboratory must provide a crew with a completely self-contained environment to meet basic crew life support needs. Beyond basic life support the vehicle must also address operational requirements for a variety of possible research projects that may be planned during a mission. An environment that can react to the passage of time and the changing nature of the mission is crucial to the interior architecture and design.

The design is based on the premise that a modular, mobile capsule can extend the research capabilities of a mission - a transformable shelter that becomes a device (like a caravan), and a device that becomes a shelter (like a car).The concept is for a small crew of 3-4 people for short-term research on the surface of Mars. A modular capsule that can be customized for a specific mission is most efficient for space applications. Mobility allows for greater scope of research. The combination of modularity and mobility leads to a more flexible framework for exploration of the planetary surface.
