You Can Now Stay The Night In NASA’s 3D-Printed Mars Habitat

As the winning project for NASA’s “Centennial Challenge” earlier this year, AI SpaceFactory’s TERA habitat was originally designed for life on the surface of a celestial body — bringing interesting, 3D-printed ergonomics and sustainable orientation to the limelight. Thanks to a recent announcement from the company, it seems that you won’t have to wait for mankind to colonize the surface of Mars to see what living in the TERA might be like.

The unique eco-habitat is, in fact, making its way to the surface of the earth — giving interested parties the opportunity to rent it out for the night. Tucked away in the undisturbed forests of upstate New York, the TERA still boasts its same obscure design, compostable materials, and cylindrical orientation of the original, but in a much more familiar location. Instead of the red, sand-strewn surfaces of Mars, the dwelling fits perfectly among the dense forests and flowing rivers of North America’s east coast — a space that’s both scientifically founded and sustainably built. If you’re interested in becoming one of the first to partake in the out-of-this-world experience, head to TERA’s IndieGoGo page for more information.
