NASA has unveiled projects for 3D printed towers that could cover the first people on Mars.
Each of the striking structures contained living quarters, as well as a laboratory for experiments.
The competition instructed teams throughout the United States to submit projects for a living environment that could accommodate the first astronauts on Mars one day on Mars.
The team "SEArch +" (Apis Cor) from New York took the first place.
Their twisted, similar to the Mars X House tower, which exists only as digital imaging at the moment, can be backed up by 3D-typed applications.
Several Mars X houses built on Mars by robots AI before people arrive to live in them.
"The House of Mars X is autonomously built using indigenous Martian materials," NASA said in a video of the projects.
She forms a groundbreaking and robust habit
Astronauts live and work in a complex that allows to filter natural light through holes scattered by a facade.
Patterns of structures show that astronauts work in the lab and relax in their rooms, with one boffin even cracking the acoustic guitar for a bit R & R.
Mars X House was one of the three winners of the NASA Habitat Challenge.
The Connecticut Group of Companies "Mars Incubator" ranked third in a project that includes space for planting for food.
There they will fight for being crowned a general winner with a prize pool of $ 800,000.
Teams will have to build a 3D model of their projects for the final battle of the competition for four years. 1
