NASA projects we’ll be on Mars by the 2030s. RedWorks has created a 3-D printing system to build your first home on the red planet.
For most of history, the idea of humans journeying to Mars has existed purely in the realm of imagination. As early as the 1880s, science fiction writers began publishing alternate realities in which people built flying machines to visit the red planet. Last year, movie audiences were captivated by Matt Damon’s struggle to stay alive in The Martian. But the prospect of putting men on Mars is no longer a fantasy. It’s now just a question of sorting out the logistics. NASA is working to achieve a manned Mars mission by the 2030s.
