Danish Origami Space Habitat

This venture may have what it takes to qualify as a new, independent topic.

The construction method should work on Mars, which would be a ** much ** less severe environment than the Moon, and not too different from Greenland.

Re: Danish Origami Space Habitat

Most people here seemed to think that cylinders or spheres are the best best for a pressurised environment...looks like this would have multiple hinges all over - surely hundreds of weak points all over.

I've posted previously about the possibly of creating quick assembly habs for Mars, with a system similar to this Chinese one:

I think the pressurisation problem can be addressed with girders attaching the walls/floors/ceilings. After all the lunar lander wasn't that spherical or cylinder like...

Internal pressure X. Meteorites X. Solar radiation X Cabin fever X. What they need is a bigger rocket!

Re: Danish Origami Space Habitat

Danish Space Research Institute was very active now most of its work is done through ESA, it took part in joint missions with NASA's Viking program Mars lander/Orbiter, the ESA Chinese Cluster DoubleStar mission Earth observation satellites and Planck CMB spacecraft. The old Space Agency is now replaced by DTU Space.


In a ways James Webb was a similar concept

Boxabl Is Building Modular Foldable Homes That Can Be Setup in an Hour

https://medium.com/democratizing-financ … aa61cddc8a

Boxabl is a company that manufactures "Boxabls" which are 20x20 mini-homes that can be stacked and re-arranged, built in a factory, mass produced, and towed by most vehicles. They can be set up in about an hour upon arrival. This allows people to purchase smaller units of a home then slowly add onto the homes as they can afford it, and could help solve the continued housing crisis around the world. They currently produce 2-4 a day, but looking to produce as much as 1 every 90 minutes as they ramp up. This could lower the burdens to home ownership, as they are about the size of an apartment, and the traditional American family is becoming increasingly smaller, and the burdens that come with home ownership increase.

Re: Danish Origami Space Habitat

Tiny homes or what is intended for the person that cannot afford a starter home seems to be the new version of a home that only needs a roof to keep dry.
Will Mars have a fold out dome to go with this little homestead?

This Futuristic Space Condo Is Designed to Squish Into SpaceX's Starship
https://futurism.com/the-byte/futuristi … x-starship
"Hopefully, we are going to learn a lot about living on the Moon."

With the help of Danish space design company SAGA Space Architects, a team of students at a Swiss boarding school designed what they call the Rosenberg Space Habitat (RSH), a futuristic three-story space condo — designed to perfectly fit inside a SpaceX Starship.

Using state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, SAGA's partners in Denmark and Italy then brought the vision to life, installing it at the school's "Future Park," a self-sustaining, "experimental outdoor space," according to a press release.

The RSH — "the world's tallest 3D-printed polymer structure" — is an impressive 23 feet high. It's meant to allow students at the Institute auf dem Rosenberg to learn about what it takes for humans to thrive in space.

To make the experience extra convincing, the team even added a pet: a resident robot in the form of a Boston Dynamics Spot robodog.
