Futuristic home has been created for future settlers on the Moon

Scientists from the United States have presented a project for an unusual habitat that can be built independently on the surface of the Moon.

Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have presented a design for a home for future settlers on the Moon. Scientists believe that such a habitat will become the basis for a future colony on the Earth’s satellite.

The main feature of this home is that it does not need to be built, and it also has a modular design, which allows it to be adapted for different purposes, reports Interesting Engineering.

MOMO

The innovative project MOMO, a self-assembling lunar habitat, is a revolutionary habitat that will be used not only by astronauts in the near future on the Moon, but also by settlers living in a lunar colony created later.

Scientists believe their innovative home will lay the foundation for long-term settlement of the Moon.

MOMO’s habitat design is based on two important goals: maximize the efficiency of placing the assembled housing inside the cargo compartment of the spacecraft; ensure modularity of the design.

This will optimize transport logistics and increase the ability of the habitat to adapt not only to the conditions of the Moon, but also to the goals of a particular mission.

The main feature of this home is that it does not need to be built, and it has a modular design, which allows it to be adapted for different purposes.

The MOMO habitat is made using an aluminum frame combined with a high-density polyethylene membrane. This combination provides strong protection from the harsh lunar environment, especially radiation, and helps keep it lightweight.

One of the features of MOMO is its modular design, which allows each module to be adapted to perform specific functions. The modules can serve as airlocks, windows, photovoltaic panels, work desks or training areas. This ensures that the home can be used for a variety of purposes, from simple living to scientific research.

MOMO’s design includes replaceable modules, meaning that if damaged, astronauts can replace the faulty module.

Scientists want to send MOMO to the Moon as part of the Artemis 3 mission in 2026, when the first human landing on the Earth’s satellite will take place in half a century. In the future, these dwellings should play an important role in establishing a long-term human presence on the Moon.

Due to the fact that it would be difficult for astronauts to assemble this dwelling after landing on the surface of the Moon, scientists decided to make this structure assemble itself. The habitat will be delivered to the Moon folded, and once landed and placed on the surface, it will be able to expand on its own with minimal human intervention.

According to scientists, MOMO’s innovative dodecahedron shape makes it easier to fold up and deploy on the Moon. The habitat will have everything necessary to support life on the Moon. There will be a bathroom, a bed and a place to rest.
