We Humans are barely on edge of being inter-planetary capable in our travels~expeditions; hence only our Moon/Luna and Mars are likely near future "worlds" we Humans might settle. Both would require extensive under-ground living/habitation with limited and/or regulated "extra-surface activities".

Meanwhile ISS ~ International Space Station ~ Occupants have provided some clue on ET living~styles ~~~ ... for now a better study might be the crews of nuclear-powered subs that have spent weeks to months under water's surface, with little to no "re-charge" of Surface Air; yet kept going ...

The challenges of inter-plantary travel are much similar to those of undersea transit ...
