The European Space Agency has released blueprints for the first habitable lunar base for mankind. Using robotic builders, the entire base would be built with lunar soil. Using high-tech 3D printing, livable dome-shaped buildings would be built. Some experts are claiming that within the next 40 years, the establishment could be ready for humans to occupy.
With 90% of needed materials for buildings already present on the moon, the ESA’s human spaceflight team’s Scott Hovland said: ”3D printing offers a potential means of facilitating lunar settlement with reduced logistics from Earth.”
The lunar soil would get turned into a cream-like substance, which then gets sprayed to form solid block material used for wall-building at the speed of ~2 meters per hour.
Make your voice heard, and urge your representatives to support NASA funding, and that you want NASA to be a part of this could-be collaborative mission:
