Students at the Institut auf dem Rosenberg (Rosenberg Institute) have worked for years to create a prototype home for future astronauts, a building designed to fit inside SpaceX’s Starship rocket. and transported beyond Earth. The Rosenberg Space Habitat building is on display on the campus of the institute.

The work with the light-transmitting structure was created in collaboration with the Danish architectural firm SAGA Space Architects. The three-story building includes a variety of amenities for astronauts to work and relax in.

In the coming years, student groups will perfect the functionality of the building. According to the Rosenberg Institute, this is the tallest 3D printed polymer structure in the world, at a height of 7 meters.

The Rosenberg Space Habitat building took two years to complete. Institute partners supported the material, with the 3D printed outer shell created in Milan and the inner structure made in Copenhagen.

Using polymers in 3D printing is a deliberate choice, as it offers more flexibility than the concrete commonly used in most 3D printed structures. In anticipation of high ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the surface of the moon or Mars, the material has UV stabilizers for added durability. If this building is demolished, the polymer can be reused to build another.

Each floor has a different purpose; the first floor is dedicated to workshop and laboratory space, the second floor is for entertainment and the third floor is for rest. The experiments in the building will mainly study the impact that extraterrestrial life can have on humans.

Protecting human life in extreme environments would be the primary goal of any extraterrestrial settlement. The architecture itself can hold promise for a solution that allows residents to survive and thrive.

Rosenberg claims to perform tests on hardware, software, remote mission control systems and “stimulating” systems, including light, sound and smell. Students, ages 6 to 18, will also participate in projects aimed at simulating “systems thinking” (how a complex system interacts between its parts) and working in the field of intelligence. artificial.
