ESA researchers are 3D printing Moon habitat bricks using concentrated sunlight

European Space Agency (ESA) researchers at the DLR German Aerospace Center facility in Cologne have used concentrated sunlight to 3D print bricks made of simulated moondust. They say that astronauts could use the same technique to print settlements on the Moon. 3D printed brick made from simulated moondust Although it hasn’t actually been done yet, 3D printing structures on the moon (and Mars) is already a much talked-about subject. That’s partly because there’s already a 3D printer in space , and partly because 3D printing is seen as a sensible option for building a lunar settlement—should humankind ever decide […]
