A Team Creates a Prototype for a Human Habitat on Mars

The requirements list for a human habitat on Mars is lengthy: The buildings must be able to withstand extreme heat and bitter cold, shield colonizers from the sun's powerful radiation and be designed for on-site construction. In May, AI SpaceFactory completed a four-day simulation to prove its MARSHA project is up to the job. The startup, based in New York, New York, USA, edged out a project team from Penn State University to become winners in the latest phase of the US$3.5 million 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge by U.S. space agency NASA.
