Use 3D printing technology to build a lunar base on the moon

wallpapers Products 2021-01-18
Landing on the moon has always been a dream of mankind. The European Space Agency has announced that when mankind will work and live on the moon in the near future, it will use 3D printers to build human dwellings with local materials.
 
Use 3D printing technology to build a lunar base on the moon
The European Space Agency released information that the establishment of a lunar base can be very simple. You only need to launch the 3D printing equipment on the moon and collect materials on the spot, and then you can use the 3D printer to build the lunar exploration base we need. The industrial partner, the famous architect Foster, joined the European Space Agency's research team as a strategic partner of the European Space Agency, and the feasibility of using lunar soil for 3D printing.
 
In theory, you can send a 3D printer to the moon. In fact, it can be on any planet, such as the recently popular Mars. Before humans reach the moon, these 3D printers can create a base for human habitation and scientific exploration.
 
On land, 3D printing technology can already create a complete lunar exploration base. Laurent Pambaguian, the project leader of the European Space Agency (ESA), said that our industrial team has studied whether this can be similarly applied. Technology to build a dwelling on the moon.
 
Actual samples printed with lunar soil
Foster-designed a housing structure with a honeycomb structure wall with a load-bearing "catenary" dome to shield the micrometeoroids and space radiation, including an inflatable airbag to protect the astronauts.
 
A hollow closed-cell structure-reminiscent of bird bones-provides a good combination of strength and lightness.
 
The design of the base is in turn designed by the nature of the 3D printed lunar soil. At present, 1.5 tons of soil has been used for demonstration experiments. 3D printing provides the potential to make the construction of the lunar base particularly convenient, eliminating the need for earth Logistics and transportation links.
 
The United Kingdom provided a D-shaped printer to supply ESA for 3D printing of the lunar base. The printer has a movable array of 3D printing nozzles. The nozzles are located on a 6-meter-long frame to spray the adhesive and spray it onto an image. Building materials like sand. 3D printers print layers on the outside. The company typically uses printers to create statues and works on man-made coral reefs to help protect the beaches on the sea from being blown away by waves. First, magnesium oxide is used to simulate the lunar material, which is treated as paper for printing. Then the binder acts as ink to bind the sand (magnesium oxide), thereby turning it into a solid material like stone.
