An American company specializing in the design and construction of homes of the future that will be used in colonization of mars by humansIt is believed to have become relatively imminent and needs a few years from now.
According to a report published by the British newspaper “Daily Mail” and seen by “Al Arabiya Net”, the company, in collaboration with “NASA”, has used 3D printing technology to design and build a human base or residential city. Once it reaches the surface of the Red Planet, it will start applying.
According to what was disclosed by the newspaper, quoting the company, the human base includes comfortable and luxurious accommodations that include a 55-inch TV, a fitness room and areas to grow crops.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has expressed his desire to establish a colony of one million people on Mars by 2050.
Texas-based construction technology startup ICON, in partnership with NASA, has created the first blueprint for a human base using 3D printing technology.
According to the Daily Mail, according to the company, “it is the preferred technology for the construction of extraterrestrial habitats due to the lack of necessary building materials.”
The 158-square-metre architectural unit, known as (Mars Dune Alpha), is currently under construction at the Johnson Space Center in Texas, the newspaper says.
And last August, the US space agency said it was welcoming applicants to participate in a one-year project to simulate life in distant worlds, set to begin in the fall of next year.
These architectural modules will simulate significant challenges on Mars, including resource depletion, equipment failure, communication delays and other environmental stressors. Crew duties may include simulating spacewalks, scientific research, using virtual reality and robotic controls, and exchanging communications.
“It’s the most accurate habitat ever simulated by humans,” said Jason Ballard, co-founder of the producer company.
Mars Dune Alpha serves a very specific purpose, which is to prepare humans for living on another planet.
“We wanted to develop a model as close as possible to helping humanity’s dream of expanding into the stars,” Ballard said.
