Space human factor engineering, considered as one of the most important ingredients of NASA human research program, provides the pivotal technical assistant for NASA designing a new generation space station system. In order to provide reference for the development of our nation’s manned spaceflight, the paper states the latest progress of space human factor engineering project of NASA, including the stroboscopic countermeasure, the effects of high suit pressures on gloved performance, the unobtrusive measurement of workload, the usability evaluation, the human–machine integration, and the improvement of lighting.
