ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

 

I would like to acknowledge with heartily thanks the support of the teachers who taught me and continuously encouraged me during the development of this project:

 

Prof. Margareta Constantinescu, my Chemistry professor at the lyceum “Costache Negruzzi” Iasi.

 

Prof. Adam Korilloff, my Physics professor at the lyceum “Costache Negruzzi” Iasi. Under his guidance, I studied physics. His teaching helped me qualify among the first 10 students in my class, at the national level, this year, at the National Physics Olympiad.

 

Prof. Dr. Horia-Nicolai Teodorescu, Technical University of Iasi, who helped me with much of the advising, thorough project reviewing and corrections.

I would like to thank all of them for mentoring me during the development of all three entries to the Space Settlement Design Contest – TEBA (2003), SEEDS (2004) and this year’s entry, TEMIS.

 

I would like to thank the organizers of the Space Settlement Design contest for providing again students all over the world the opportunity to learn, dream and create designs of space settlements.

 

I thank God for keeping me in good health and for allowing me to complete this work.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this project!
