NASA Plans to Build Houses on the Moon

Nasa has given a $60 million contract to an Austin-based construction company, ICON, to build houses on the moon by 2024, with plans to make them available for civilians.

ICON uses 3D printing technology for construction, and they’ll send a 3D printer to the moon to build the houses using moon materials. Nasa is working with various institutions and private companies for other house components like doors and furniture.

This is part of a long-term plan that involves astronauts setting foot on Mars and building homes there. Details, including the cost for civilians to stay on the moon, are still in early stages and subject to change.
