According to Jason Ballard, co-founder, and CEO of ICON, “Building humanity’s first home on another world will be the most ambitious construction project in human history and will push science, engineering, technology, and architecture to literally new heights. NASA’s investment in space-age technologies like this can not only help to advance humanity’s future in space but also solve very real, vexing problems we face on Earth. We are honored to begin our research and development on ICON’s “Project Olympus” and the “Olympus Construction System.”

The Olympus Construction System’s CEO Jason Ballard started to research and development on ICON’s ‘Project Olympus.’
In this project, Building humanity’s first home on another world will be the most ambitious construction project in human history and will push science, engineering, technology, and architecture to literal new heights.’
ICON is a partner with NASA‘s Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama to test a variety of processing and printing technologies using simulated lunar soil.

As we know, NASA Announces Virtual 3D-Printed Mars Habitats a couple of years ago.
