    GSO ES-1: Node Requirements

    ES=1 Node One will comprise an outer layer 2 meters thick of Earth filled barriers, then an inner wall of formed smart bricks or concrete (lunar regolith will be used on the Moon) construction and a very lightweight inner pressurized bladder designed from layers of Kevlar or urethane-coated Vectran to hold shape and provide thermal stability and EVOH / Combitherm or other material to provide a gas barrier. Station Ceiling will be supported by 16 thermally resilient polymer I beams with layers of smart bricks 2 meters thick for radiation and micro meteor resistance. (Smart bricks can be formed on the Moon using lunar regolith and extracted sulfur used as a binder.)
