3D printed structures on the moon

Curioo: Foster + partners have teamed up with the european space agency to 3D print structures on the moon using local materials. With current technologies allowing for entire buildings to be constructed using three-dimensional printing methods, the idea of expanding to build lunar habits could be seen as realistic in the coming years.
