It's full steam ahead with this whole Theoretically Someday Moving to Mars thing, and now that we've already figured out what food we're going to eat (bacteria powder) and what music we're going to listen to (Bowie), it's time to answer the next pressing question: what we're going to built our houses out of once we get bored of the space dwellings that starchitects have designed for us?

Don't worry—scientists at MIT have us covered, having just invented Martian concrete: a new type of concrete made using sulphur and Martian soil, that we can mix up without wasting precious water. This is all really coming together.
