Information

In 2019 NASA concluded a competition that sought perspectives from outside the traditional aerospace industry to explore how a human habitat could be designed and delivered, on Mars using autonomous 3D printing technologies. The competition’s goal was to advance construction technology needed to create sustainable habitation solutions for Mars and beyond. This was an opportunity for designers and engineers to push the thinking on human-centric design with an approach that moves beyond the idea of astronauts as purely operators, to create habitats where people can not only survive, but also thrive. This panel will bring together NASA, an architect, and an Antarctic doctor, to discuss what is required to create spaces where people can live and explore the far reaches of space.
