Mooncrete? NASA discovery could pave the way for future extraterrestrial building

2018-05-09
Peter Kenter July 28, 2017 Researchers at the NASA Ames Research Center in California have discovered they can make surprisingly strong bricks using a small amount of biological binding agent and simulated lunar soil. "The addition of this protein solidified the soil simulant into a really hard, firm structure that could be used for construction purposes," says David Loftus, a medical officer with the Space Bioscience Research Branch at NAS
