Interesting Fact - Buildings out of Moon Dust

A firm of architects, Fosters and Partners, have revealed designs for constructing a building on the Moon.

(Following collaboration between a number of organisations including the European Space Agency, the idea is that an inflatable structure would be transported from Earth, then covered with a shell built by 3D printers. The 3D printers would use a material already on the surface of the moon - moon dust aka regolith.

Moon-base Alpha, here we come!)
