When mankind finally arrives at Mars, it will be an important achievement, but the passengers who first stepped on to the Red Planet will probably not be there to stay. Ultimately, however, NASA and other scientific groups around the world expect us to colonize not only Mars, but other planets, and to realize this dream, we will need places where interplanetary passengers can live.
With that in mind, NASA launched the 3D-print Habitat challenge, which instructed teams of researchers and engineers to design spaces for space travelers that could be created on demand using 3D printing hardware brought to a theoretical journey to Mars or another Earth-like planet. Now one of the final stages of the race is over and NASA has chosen its three favorite virtual homes.
The competition takes place in three phases and each phase is divided into several specific tasks. The teams are currently in the final phase, and the virtual 3D construction that has just been completed gives three unique habitats.
This part of the challenge is worth $ 1
the biggest test for the teams will be head to head, which will give them the task of printing a small version of their creations to an audience of scholars and scholars. This event is scheduled to take place from May 1 to May 4 in Illinois and the money portfolio is at a huge $ 800,000. None of this guarantees that the first people to colonize Mars will live in houses modeled exactly like those designed by the teams in this race, but this is a good way for NASA to explore new habitat opportunities and to find engineers and designers with whom he would like to work when that day finally arrives.
