NASA has selected the finalists of the competition to develop housing for astronauts on Mars.

First place went to the team from Arkansas. According to their idea, the robots will collect the necessary resources for the construction of housing directly on Mars, after which the house can be printed using 3D printers. The authors argue that this technology will allow to increase the area of the building, and with it the number of occupants.

The creators of the five best projects divided between the prize Fund in the amount of one hundred thousand dollars. Their work is published on the official website of NASA.

The contest was announced in 2014, and was attended by 18 teams from all over the world. The organizers hope that participants will be able to bring the human race to colonize new planets.
