Dubai will build a Martian city in the desert

Дубай построит марсианский город в пустыне (4 фото) Continuing to surprise the world community with the most daring architectural solutions, the Dubai authorities approved the implementation of the large-scale Mars Science City project. It involves the construction of 180 thousand m² of desert autonomous geo-houses, which will simulate life in an alien colony.

To implement the idea will require 140 million dollars. According to the plan, the city will consist of several transparent domes, which will house scientific laboratories specializing in the cultivation of crops suitable for life on other planets, as well as a museum dedicated to space research and achievements in exploring new worlds.

During construction, 3D printing and desert sand will be used. Such a large-scale imitation of life in the prototype of the Martian colony should, in a practical way, reveal to the scientific and space communities the maximum possible number of nuances for their elimination or leveling before the actual sending of people to Mars. The Mars Science City project is part of the flagship program Mars 2117 of the Dubai authorities, where the main goal is to create an active colony on the Red Planet over the next hundred years.
