NASA awards Texas company to develop structures on the Moon

Posted by in categories: habitats, space, sustainability

The partnership aims at building infrastructures, such as landing pads, habitats, and roads on the lunar surface.

In a quest to find practical solutions to build sustainable structures on the moon, NASA has furthered its partnership with ICON, a construction technologies company based in Austin, Texas. The firm is known for building the first-ever habitable 3D-printed home in the United States in 2018.

This 3D Printed House Only Cost $13,000 In Materials

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, Elon Musk, habitats

Construction and 3D Printing. This is a really cool video. There is demand for affordable housing, and it can be built and rented out, or just lived in. Imagine if many people where you live are empowered with simple housing. Would it be a waste of money if it can pay for itself?

This is the cool company that makes these cool machines. The USA sent $1 billions in weapons to Ukraine in one month, to a war that costs $1 billion a month. Elon Musk just paid $44 billion for Twitter when a $50 billion investment in affordable housing could net him how much in rental income if the houses cost $15,000 in materials?

In Space-Mengtian Lab Module/Astronauts

Posted by in categories: habitats, health, space

In space — Recent (China Manned Space Agency — No access Chinese mainland) 1. Various of Shenzhou-14 astronaut Cai Xuzhe unpacking packages 2. Various of Shenzhou-14 crew checking facilities, opening boxes and inspecting equipment 3. Shenzhou-14 crew installing and trying out microgravity resistance exercise device 4. Shenzhou-14 astronaut Liu Yang exercising with microgravity resistance exercise device.

The Shenzhou-14 astronauts have completed several missions over the last two weeks, including the installation of equipment in the work area of the Mengtian lab module which they entered for the first time on Nov. 3. Among the scientific and basic living equipment, the astronauts have also set up a small home gym to help them stay fit. The crew members-Chen Dong, Liu Yang and Cai Xuzhe can now keep fit in the lab with a special microgravity resistance exercise device similar to a rowing machine with which astronauts can do squats, heel lifts, hard pulls, rowing and shoulder exercise. Resistance exercise is especially important for astronauts living in zero gravity conditions which can rapidly reduce muscle mass and bone density.

On Sunday, the trio entered the Tianzhou-5 cargo craft to fetch supplies for the Tiangong space station.

UMaine unveils first 3D-printed home in a bid to mass-produce affordable housing

Posted by in categories: climatology, habitats

Researchers at the University of Maine on Monday unveiled what they say is a promising, climate-friendly response to the nation’s affordable housing crisis: the world’s first, bio-based 3D printed home.

University, state and federal officials joined Maine Gov. Janet Mills and U.S. Sen. Susan Collins at a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the 600-square-foot-home.

The home is made entirely from a wood-based material, which University of Maine researchers say is an inexpensive, renewable and recyclable building option.

Making Cosmic Magnets on Earth

Posted by in categories: habitats, physics, space

Greer and Ivanov agree that existing, albeit limited, data on tetrataenite’s magnetic properties suggest that it may not match high-performance neodymium-based magnets. But the researchers maintain that optimization of the tetrataenite casting process could improve its magnetic properties and thus make it a worthwhile option. “It is good to have a wider range of permanent magnet materials, because that allows better balancing of such factors as magnetic performance and environmental impact,” Greer says. “A one-for-one swap with rare-earth magnets is not necessarily the goal.”

For now, the team has demonstrated how to make a piece of tetrataenite, but they say that future work will focus on how to consolidate many pieces into a bulk magnet. “The analogy here would be that we have shown we can make a brick—a piece of tetrataenite—but not yet a house—a magnet,” Greer says.

Beyond materials science, the researchers hint that this work may even impact astrophysics research as scientists reconsider how long it takes for tetrataenite to develop in a meteorite and how fast the cooling rate is in that space environment.

First ever 100 percent bio-based 3D-printed home unveiled

Posted by in categories: habitats, materials

The new type of home could address housing shortages.

On Monday, the University of Maine Advanced Structures and Composites Center (ASCC) unveiled the first 3D-printed house made entirely out of bio-based materials called BioHome3D, according to a press release by the institution.

Fully recyclable and highly insulated
