In future space missions when distances and durations become longer, elements of space craft design, previously thought to be irrelevant, will carry extreme importance. Issues that may occur during a long term space mission are identified using research from analogue earth environments; locations on earth which have similar attributes to space, such as extreme climate or confinement. Music and sound research is than applied to these locales to show the positive changes that can result from the use of proper audio design, both in acoustics and generated sounds. Potential solutions are provided, as well as equipment options.
