Register for NASA's 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge

If you are interested in space, construction, 3D printing, materials, or just being part of something big, consider being part of NASA’s next Centennial Challenge—the 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge. The competition focuses on the 3D-printing fabrication of a scaled habitat design, using indigenous materials combined with or without recyclables, and has a prize purse of $1.7 million.
Calling all dreamers, inventors, and thinkers!

If you are interested in space, construction, 3D printing, materials, or just being part of something big, consider being part of NASA’s next Centennial Challenge—the 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge.

NASA and its partners are holding a competition to build a 3D-printed habitat for deep space exploration, including the agency’s journey to Mars. The multi-phase challenge is designed to advance the construction technology needed to create sustainable housing solutions for Earth and beyond. It focuses on the fabrication of scaled habitat designs and systems that could use indigenous materials combined with or without recyclables, and will have a prize purse of $1.7 million.

To register, and for the official rules and documents, visit the NASA 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge website.
