When mankind eventually makes it to Mars, it’s going to be a momentous achievement, but the travelers who first set foot on the Red Planet probably won’t be there to stay. Eventually, however, NASA and other scientific groups around the world expect that we’ll colonize not only Mars, but other planets as well, and to realize that dream, we’re going to need places for interplanetary travelers to live.
With that in mind, NASA launched its 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge which tasked teams of researchers and engineers with designing homes for space travelers that could be created on-demand using 3D printing hardware brought along on a theoretical trip to Mars or another Earth-like planet. Now, one of the final stages of the competition has wrapped up, and NASA picked its three favorite virtual abodes.
