This text is based on the page for Salyut 7, with some simplifications made appropriate for analog missions. Ideally stick to this rough format, or make up your own for latter sections! The format presented here is pretty maximalist, ideal for habitats with a PR person that can write this all up. Smaller habitats can delete a lot of subsections and just use the major subheadings

Two-paragraph intro on the base for context. Date of operation, projects and missions, operating organisation etc.


Longer bit about the base, 1-2 paragraphs, any stats or notable events (first missions of a certain type, long durations, notable research).

Facility and equipment

Overview of the equipment available in the base. Subsections below are provided if you want to use them, or just write them in a paragraph

Scientific facilities

Permanent lab facilities etc

Technical systems

Any details about power, water, ventilation etc

EVA systems and environment

Spacesuits and rovers, any permanent EVA equipment. As much detail about the EVA environment (geology, topology) as you like.


Any meta-info you want to provide about the missions
