NASA selected the best projects of the competition for the creation of 3D-printed houses on Mars. Look at them right now!

During the fourth stage of the competition, participants had to create fully thought-out virtual

At the same time, the companies had to prove the viability of the projects, taking into account the possibilities of 3D printing.

SEArch+/Apis Cor from New York took first place. Her project looks like a complex of twisted towers with a lot of windows into which sunlight penetrates.

The team received $ 34 thousand to refine the concept and print the layout of the building.

Second place and $33.4 thousand.received Team Zoperhous from Arkansas. Engineers have proposed a method for printing their buildings with an autonomous rover that will arrive on the Red Planet before humans and create buildings for them.

The project is a complex of several residential modules that are united by a single system of corridors.

In third place with a prize of $32.6 is the Mars Incubator team from Connecticut.

The researchers created a deployable module with residential areas and a greenhouse for growing plants.

The last stage of the competition will be held on May 14 - teams will present small-scale 3D-printed models of their structures.
