NASA says people will live in 3-D printed homes on the moon by 2040

Forward-looking: Sci-fi movies, shows, and books have long been filled with tales of humanity living in homes on the moon. It sounds like something most of us won't see, but NASA is planning for 3D-printed houses, occupied by both astronauts and civilians, to be in place by 2040.

In a report by the New York Times that interviewed seven NASA scientists, all said that the space agency's ambitious timeline of 2040 for lunar structures was achievable if it continued to hit its benchmarks.

"We're at a pivotal moment, and in some ways it feels like a dream sequence. In other ways, it feels like it was inevitable that we would get here," said Niki Werkheiser, NASA's director of technology maturation.

The plan involves sending a 3D printer to build the structures using lunar concrete from the rock chips, mineral fragments, and dust that sits on the top layer of the moon's surface.

NASA has partnered with ICON, an Austin, Texas-based construction company that uses a 3D printer to create homes, for the project. It has already created hundreds of structures using this method for the homeless in Austin, as well as hurricane-resistant houses in Mexico. The printer can build homes in as little as 48 hours.

Why tho? Like why not just make some more homes here on Earth for 50 billion dollars less?

After reading aome predictions from the 60's, I have doubts. Maybe if people didn't lose interest in space, they would have come true.

Maybe if we weren't expending an astronomical amount of resources of diversity, inclusion, and all other pointless woke endeavours we could've focused on space exploration and all the other interesting and meaningful pursuits we once dreamed of.

Those things are more important, and that's ot what's draining funds. It's military. It's that one percent of people hoard all the money.

Nobody hoards money unless they're poor. Rich people invest, which in turn generates more wealth. For them, but also the enterprise they invest in, and all the people who work there and buy the service or product.
