NASA and other space agencies don't just want to visit the Moon but they want to live on the lunar surface. They have found a way to build future shelters by mixing urine and local soil. Scientists mixed urea with lunar material to create a type of moon concrete and the team used a 3D printer to create cylinders of material made from moon regolith substitute mixed with urea. The results were promising.
