Old Age Communities

The Reference Model colony design provides three gravity environments: Earth normal, 2/3 Earth, and 1/3 Earth. The latter two gravity levels would be quite suitable for elderly citizens: While the senior members of our society often retain their mental faculties, their physical reaction time is slowed due to their advanced age. Consequently, when they fall, they tend to suffer greater injuries because they cannot catch themselves to break the fall. In a lower-gravity environment, the duration of the fall would be longer, giving them more time to react - and reduce the chance of dangerous injuries.
