3D printing to pave the way for Moon colonization

Researchers prepared an extensive review on the use of Additive Manufacturing technologies in crewed lunar exploration. It contains a comprehensive description of the geological composition of the lunar surface and the properties of lunar soil (lunar regolith) and its simulants, detailing their mineralogy, morphology, and chemical composition in the light of their future use as feedstock for 3-D-printing on the moon surface.
