Moon Dust: Is It the Key to Space Colonization? Researchers 3D Print Simulated Regolith to See

Our fascination with space travel is never-ending, and the reality that we have been able to travel to the moon is still a source of keen fascination (or perhaps question, if you are a conspiracy theorist on the subject!). Colonization in space is a key factor in many sci-fi movies today, as well as the topic of numerous conferences held around the world in recent years—with housing in space being one of the main hurdles. With the advent of 3D printing (not to mention its many uses by NASA over the decades), colonization seems more viable due to the potential for taking simple machinery that could make use of ‘local’ materials—whether on the moon or a faraway planet like Mars. So far, it is expected that regolith (known more whimsically as ‘moon dust’) will play a starring role in housing materials for those lucky space inhabitants of the future—and […]
