THIS IS WHAT LIFE ON MARS COULD LOOK LIKE, ACCORDING TO NASA

Can you imagine living on Mars? NASA can. 

The federal aerospace agency just unveiled the winners of their 3D-Printed Habitat Centennial Challenge competition. In partnership with Bradley University, a panel of expert judges reviewed technologically-advanced concept homessubmitted by 18 teams from across the world.

Each sustainable structure is set on a Martian landscape, but the challenge’s ultimate goal is to design habitats that could function elsewhere in the galaxy—including the Moon—using indigenous resources.

“They are not just designing structures, they are designing habitats that will allow our space explorers to live and work on other planets,” program director Monsi Roman said in a NASA press release. “We are excited to see their designs come to life as the competition moves forward.”

The top five contestants split a $100,000 prize. Check out each incredible Martian house below:

5. NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY OF EVANSTON, ILLINOIS – $17,881.10

4. SEARCH+/APIS COR OF NEW YORK – $19,580.97

3. KAHN-YATES OF JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI – $20,622.74

2. AI. SPACEFACTORY OF NEW YORK – $20,957.24

1. TEAM ZOPHERUS OF ROGERS, ARKANSAS – $20,957.95
