Space agency backs 3D print technology which could build base
January 16, 2014
Creating structures in space that astronauts can live in has become a priority for Nasa.
With a manned mission to Mars on the agenda, and plans for lunar exploration underway, scientists are increasingly looking towards unconventional construction methods.
The most promising of these is 3D printing, which could make building a lunar home in space a matter of pressing a button and letting a robot do the work.
