Paragon Space Development Corporation is a premier provider of environmental controls for extreme and hazardous environments. Mars One contracted Paragon to complete the initial conceptual design of the Surface Habitat Environmental Control and Life Support Systems (ECLSS) due to their specialization in engineering and manufacturing thermal control and life support systems with a specific focus on extreme environments. In this Mars Exchange interview, we asked Grant Anderson (GA), President and CEO of Paragon Space Development Corporation, and Barry Finger (BF), Paragon Chief Engineer, Director of Life Support Systems, some questions about their cooperation with Mars One.

Bryan Versteeg is the mission concept artist for Mars One. He has created the images and animations that help us all envision what the settlement will look like. Bryan Versteeg has worked for over 20 years in the graphics industry, including 15 years as a conceptual artist in the architectural and engineering fields. He is the founder of SpaceHabs.com, which provides visualizations of space exploration; cofounder of FreeSpace Composites, a carbon fiber 3D print system; and cofounder of Deep Space Industries, which is focused on determining the methodology and profitability of asteroid mining.

Versteeg’s illustrations for Mars One emerge from a deep understanding of functional demands and human requirements. This summer, I spoke with him about his work and the process he uses to develop his illustrations. The first of this two-part story was told in Artist Visualizes Life on Mars, released on the 5th January, 2016. In this second part, Versteeg describes his ideas about settlement expansion.
