NASA held a contest to design a 3D habitat on Mars, and the winner is a vertical pod that can be printed in 30 hours


NASA’s 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge finally revealed a winner this month after four years of competition.

Designers were asked to create a printable 3D habitat that could shelter humans on Mars.

The winning design, known as Marsha, features vertical pods with outer shells made from materials naturally found on the red planet.

The pods also feature hatches that deploy space suits and a docking port for a Mars Exploration Rover.
