Looming above downtown Youngstown, Ohio, the painted sign on the brick wall speaks of a hopeful long-ago time–the early 20th century–when money flowed like water in what was once one of America’s greatest steel towns
There’s already been plenty of talk about 3D-printing entire buildings , but those ambitions may not remain strictly earthbound for too long. According to a new report from Phys.org , the European Space Agency and partners from London-based architecture firm Foster + Partners have begun to explore the feasibility of 3D printing a life-sustaining base on the lunar surface
