Abstract: The crucial challenge to astrobiology research on Mars is for the astronaut crews to conduct the search for life past and present from a Mars surface base. The Mars base will require a highly specialized astrobiology science laboratory to facilitate this research. This paper presents an incremental strategy to develop the laboratory technology and facility necessary to enable the astrobiology investigation on Mars.

“…Of necessity, in-space laboratories depart from the leading trend in contemporary terrestrial laboratory design practice: "open plan" configurations. 5 The harsh economics of space architecture force contained-module, closed-plan laboratories until extensive in situ construction can be achieved. This means the ISS precedent and other volumeconstrained mobile laboratories are appropriate starting points for adaptation based on planet-surface conditions and the expanded laboratory functional programs described above.…”

“…Two of the surveyed rover concepts included a sample airlock: Griffin (1990) andESA (2000). In combination with an astrobiology "glovebox" research chamber (Cohen, 2000), it holds the key to examining scientific samples inside the pressurized rover while an EVA team of two or more crew members is exploring the terrain on foot outside the rover. The crewmembers collect rocks, soil, and other materials, and place it in a protective containment.…”

“…Instead, it becomes necessary only to pump down or bleed off a very small interstitial volume between the space suit backpack and the "airlockless" inner hatch. The precedents for this strategy include the "Suitport" idea, the NASA-Ames Hazmat vehicle shown in FIGURE 5, and the HamiltonSundstrand "Ready to Wear" Marssuit (Hodgeson & Guyer, 1998, 2000.…”
