In & out Challenge: Solve the problem of living on the moon.
Since there are many dangers on the moon’s surface, such as radiation, extreme climate conditions, and solar storms, we realized that building underground homes could protect humans from these dangers.
To solve the lack of no natural sunlight, we created glass tunnels that will begin overground, and flow underground – this will create special ‘windows’ allowing sunlight in the living habitat. The residential structures will be built using an easy construction method, meaning that all the elements will be built in advance on Earth and then mounted on the moon.
The prototype we built is a paper-mache’ model of a underground home.
