NASA Unveils 3-D Printed Habitat Challenge

The heart of the program is figuring out how to use indigenous materials available on other planets or celestial bodies to make 3D printed shelters. If NASA can avoid bringing all those materials from Earth, it will save having to lift hundreds of tons of building supplies into space.
