Living off the Martian Land: Solutions for Colonizing Mars

Space exploration and future planetary colonization is exciting to dream about. However, before humankind can venture to the Red Planet and beyond, we have many obstacles to overcome. One major problem is the expense of space travel. The Pacific International Space Center for Exploration Systems (PISCES) is researching how to mitigate costs by creating novel construction materials using the rock and dust found on places like Mars, sparing costly expenses of transporting resources from Earth.
