"Nishakara" is an octagonal habitation system with three main expansions. A fully folded module [6×6m] easily fits into the starship's cargo area [8m radius]. Foldable parts are based on origami structures, inspired by traditional Japanese folding fan. Instead of a traditional airlock, the habitat has been equipped with two spacesuit docks and security hatches from the inside. Thanks to the expansion abilities of the habitat we can obtain 110 cubic meters/per person net-without a system. Project "NISHAKARA" is prepared by our students Jakub Pietryszyn and Aishwarya, under the guidance of Aastha Kacha
