As blogged on Advocator.ca, we didn’t even set foot on the Red Planet, and NASA has already approved some 3D designs for habitats to be built there from materials that are available on Mars.
Just in case you didn’t know, back in 2015, NASA launched a design competition, and the space agency has asked architects and tech experts to design some habitats that would be suitable to live in on the red planet.
These houses reportedly had to be suitable for 3D printing because NASA wants Mars rovers fitted with large-scale printers in order to build these, just to make sure that the planet will be habitable before humans get there.
Unilad notes that this month, the winning design is titled Marsha and it has been created by the AI SpaceFactory – a planetary architectural and technology design agency’ based in New York City.
This habitat is made up of “cone-like buildings, 15 feet high and 8 feet in diameter. They are designed to be printed in just 30 hours and would offer a ‘tiny bubble of Earth on a distant world’,” according to the online publication.
