Indian scientists develop SPACE BRICKS for future construction on the Moon
The Indian Institute of Science (IIS) teamed up with the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) to produce what they call “space bricks.”
The invention, they say, as quoted by local media, will facilitate future construction projects on the Earth’s satellite, including those that require the use of resources found on-site.
Tomorrow at ISRO's Human Space Flight Symposium, will be talking about the making of 'space bricks' or bricks that can be used for extra-terrestrial habitats.

Another part of India’s ambitious space exploration program is the Gaganyaan manned mission, which India hopes to launch by 2022. The ISRO has already selected four future crew members to train in Russia.Also on rt.com Ground control to Major Vyomm: India unveils female robot designed for space odyssey (VIDEO)
