Construction Firm Partnering With NASA to Figure Out How to Build on the Moon

From a story on by Asher Price headlined “Austin firm ICON wins NASA contract for lunar construction”:

A cutting-edge Austin construction firm is partnering with NASA to figure out ways to build on the moon.

Why it matters: Astronauts aiming to live on the moon or, one day, Mars, will need to call some place home.

Driving the news: ICON, known for its 3D-printed homes and military barracks, is announcing today that it has landed a $57.2 million contract for Project Olympus, the company’s effort to develop spaced-based construction to support exploration of the moon and beyond.
