Harnessing the Sun & Wind to 3D Print Habitats on Mars

3D printing offers great potential for construction in space, as printers on the ISS, asteroids, or even the surface of the Moon could rely on materials from the local environment to fabricate structures, limiting the amount of resources that would need be launched from Earth, therefore reducing the valuable payload space and weight of outgoing spacecraft. Exactly how those printers would work, however, is still being sorted out. On […]
