Space Fantasy #74: Is This What Human Colonies Will Look Like On Mars?

Is this what human colonies will look like on Mars? NASA announces three finalists in its Martian habitat design competition

NASA has announced three finalists in an ongoing design competition tasking engineers to dream up sustainable dwellings that can be 3-D printed on Mars. Finalists split a prize pot of $100,000 and include SEArch+/Apis Cor, out of New York who took first place, Zopherus from Rogers, Arkansas who came in second, and Mars Incubator out of New Have Connecticut who took the third spot. The three contestants were chosen out of a pool of 11 candidates and were scored based on 'architectural layout, programming, efficient use of interior space, and the 3D-printing scalability and constructability of the habitat.' From here, according to NASA, teams will go on to compete in a showdown with a prize pool of $800,000 -- the final competition phase slated to take place in early May. Source
