In UAE, a Dhs500 million project simulating the conditions of life on Mars is ready to build. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid AI Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai are launching “Mars Science City,” which will cover 1.9 million square feet.
The project has been designed for testing of living on the surface of Mars. The city will reflect the life on the Mars to lead the global scientific race to send people to Mars as part of the Mars 2117 strategy.
Humans are not ready to live their life on the red planet just yet, but once they get ready, we’ll need to know actually which structures and technology will work best to keep first travelers feel alive and well.
The project will cost at around $150 million to build as it is largest space simulation settlement project. Danish architect, Bjarke Ingels will supervise the construction through simulating the Mars landscape using the desert wasteland.
The Dubai Municipality sector and the Dubai Future Accelerators program are working together and share the 3D Printing Strategy’s aim of obtaining 25% of all construction in Dubai by using 3D printing.
Prime Minister of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid AI Maktoum said on the announcement, “The UAE seeks to establish international efforts to develop technologies that benefit humankind and that establish the foundation of a better future for more generations to come.”
It’s an incredibly biggest project and will take massive time for construction. The city will contain several domes, with creative construction techniques which will provide support for the structure.
