Soo this super interesting video about 3-D printing villages on the moon is definitely water cool material. According to the head of European Space Agency (ESA), Johann-Dietrich Woerner, the ESA wants to build a permanent settlement on the moon dubbed as, ‘Moon Village’ as soon as 2030.
Woerner says it’ll be the next giant leap for mankind and space exploration. He also expects the highly-anticipated lunar base to act as a stepping stone for science, which will also lead to new opportunities for business and even tourism.
Private construction companies since 2013 have been working with the ESA, looking for new and innovative ways to turn ‘Moon Village’ into a reality.
Reports suggest the best option is to use the natural resources from the moon’s surface taken from rovers and then use it to 3-D print structures near the moon’s poles, or on the far side of the moon, regions with continuous daylight.
Creating a ‘Moon Village’ is possible however the ESA needs collaboration from all spacefaring nations such as the USA, Russia, China, India and Japan and others to form an international community to make it happen.
