Architect Lays Out Plan For 3D-Printed Towers on Mars

New, 4 comments

2015 might have been the year of people being unduly optimistic about the possibility of moving to Mars, but if architect Alberto Villanueva Galindo has his way, that trend will continue into 2016 as well. Galindo, the founder of London-based IDEA Architecture, has a proposal that involves using the ice water under the Red Planet's surface to "terraform" Mars, creating large, inhabitable towers that would melt after six months. It also involves 3D printing and electromagnetic energy, so...sounds about as feasible as all the other plans.
