NASA Mobile Quarantine Facility

NASA Mobile Quarantine Facility

This mobile quarantine facility (MQF) was one of four built by NASA for astronauts returning from the Moon. A converted Airstream trailer, the MQF contained living and sleeping quarters, a kitchen, and a bathroom. Quarantine was assured by keeping the air pressure inside lower than the pressure outside, and by filtering the air vented from the facility.
