Buildings, launch pads and roads could be built out of moon dust melted with a laser, turning the lunar surface into a vital outpost for further space exploration. (Image: Team SEArch+/Apis Cor)

AI-assisted laser 3D printing to create moon-base infrastructure

On-site fabrication could save enormous transportation costs and be a crucial factor in advancing the exploration of the Moon and space

The scientists can use the plume generated during LPBF as a ‘process signature’ that provides insight into the stability of the process. (Image: Heriot-Watt University)

Researchers optimise LPBF using plume monitoring

Examining the plume generated during LPBF can help determine the stability of the process.
