Abstract: The Center for Extraterrestrial Engineering and Construction (CETEC) has been envisioned as an organization, a center of knowledge and information, and a set of experimental test facilities. The primary purpose would be to deal with the technologies related to engineering and construction on extraterrestrial bodies. The organization responsible for CETEC is proposed to be a consortium of universities, government laboratories, government agencies, private industries, and small business. An international cooperative approach to the research facility is envisioned, which will benefit space engineering researchers from all over the world.
