Abstract: To help design and construct human habitats for Earth orbit, the moon, and Mars, NASA is turning to teams of experts in academia and private industry, including civil and structural engineers. The ideas being discussed will, in some cases, take terrestrial engineering concepts into extraterrestrial settings and, in return, apply some of the spacebased solutions back here on Earth.
