New NASA Challenge for Deep Space Habitats

NASA Challenges Designers to Construct Habitat for Deep Space Exploration:

NASA and the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, known as America Makes, are holding a new $2.25 million competition to design and build a 3-D printed habitat for deep space exploration, including the agency’s journey to Mars.

The multi-phase 3-D Printed Habitat Challenge, part of NASA’s Centennial Challenges program, is designed to advance the additive construction technology needed to create sustainable housing solutions for Earth and beyond.

There’s a design phase (30 winners will be chosen) and then two 3-D manufacturing stages. We’ll definitely have to keep an eye on this.
