Alien Technology for Alien Worlds: Design for Biological Construction of Living Habitation on Mars

The research explores the potential and challenges of using bio-composites for space applications - and how these might be addressed - providing functionally graded, mycelium-based bio-composites for the construction of regenerative and adaptive extraterrestrial habitats. Based on the idea of engineered living materials, the concept employs the living biological growth in a controlled environment for the process of material fabrication, assembly and maintenance.
