Chris Barreras, Payloads Engineer Responds:

To The Mouse Habitat by Brendan and Wes

Are you showing the top view?

How is power routing to the habitat for the light and fan?

What is the wattage for the light? You don't want this to cause the habitat to get really warm. I should dictate a power budget for these designs like the orbiter does to us on Neurolab,... but I won't.

How will the waste move to the suction tube from the area of the food giver?
Remember the animal will go poop in the area of the food giver.
