Abstract
This Reference Document presents the highlights from the 2018 Resilient ExtraTerrestrial Habitats (RETH) workshop held 22–23 October 2018 at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN. The purpose of RETH was to bring together academic, industry, and government experts in order to discuss challenges of operating in extreme conditions and imposing a presence in such environments. The non-classified nature of the workshop allowed for open discussion and exchange of ideas about important issues such as the operational integration, capabilities to operate in extreme environments, and identifying research directions and framework for future operations. The topic of commercial investment and operations was also discussed. The RETH highlighted the importance of ongoing discussion and joint effort to tackle the challenges surrounding the operational requirements and opportunities in extreme environments, including the importance of discussing issues that will inevitably become part of our space exploration and expansion into that realm (e.g., extra-terrestrial military bases, missile defence in orbit, space-based weapons, and dominance over the space domain).
