Moon Bricks

Take some moon dust, add some ground up spaceship, zap the mix with electricity, and presto! Moon bricks.

Astronauts living on the moon could someday use such a formula to construct an interlocking, virtually indestructible dome-shaped home.

"The habitat would look just like an igloo," said Kathryn Logan, a professor at Virginia Tech involved in the project. "No nails, no cement would be necessary to hold it together. The shape of the bricks will do that."

Science is so cool!!

And now that we don't have an anti-science buffoon in the White House, well, lots of things can now happen.
