E|A|S (Evolving Asteroid Starships) is a trans-disciplinary research project in which bio-inspired concepts for (manned) interstellar exploration are being developed. A long-duration journey through interstellar space is characterized by a high level of uncertainty. Environmental disturbances such as cosmic radiation surges and
particle impact events cannot be predicted in detail for the entire flight path. A spacecraft with a built-in capacity to grow and evolve during its journey offers a solution to cope with such unforeseen challenges.
