    We might not be able to terraform Mars but NASA is still looking for ways to colonize the red planet. The space agency has just announced the winners of a contest to design a 3D printed Martian habitat that four astronauts could call home for up to a year. The habitat needs 1,000 square feet of living space, with plans for essentials like life support, mechanical and electrical systems, plumbing, and spacesuit and rover hatches. It should be sustainable, and possible to 3D print on Mars using the planet's natural resources. It also has to be able to withstand extreme cold and harsh...
