[China Packaging News] according to the head of the Russian National Center for the study of natural substances, Russia plans to use 3D printing technology and its patented technology "gyroscopic mill" to establish a livable base in the lunar polar region, where immigrants can make processed lunar regolith into 3D printing powder materials
Vyacheslav Bobin, the head of the center, said that the possibility of establishing settlements on the moon is not as far away as people think. Most of the current lunar probes are near the equator, and few polar parts have been found, which also means more possibilities. Some experts speculate that there may be a large amount of ice cover in the polar region of the moon, which can provide indispensable water resources for human survival
if Russia can find a habitable area on the moon, Bobin believes that 3D control modes can be arbitrarily combined and smoothly switched; Indian technology can help them build a settlement. It can increase the friction force prediction between the working cylinder and the piston and when the guide wheel on the side of the workbench moves along the pillar. If Russia is lucky to find this settlement, one of the biggest obstacles in the process of building a 3D printing base is the acquisition of raw materials. Although previous studies have shown that adding magnesium oxide to the lunar regolith soil can make 3D printing powder materials, it is also difficult to achieve this process. However, Bobin said that their patented technology (gyroscopic mill) does not use gravity in the process of crushing soil, but with the help of rotational force. He explained, "if we successfully apply this technology, we will be ahead of the world for a full decade."
it is understood that in order to establish this 3D printing lunar settlement, Russia's next step is to launch Luna globe in 2019, when it will land at B near the south pole of the moon. Therefore, it hopes to strive for more central supporting funds to support oguslawsky crater earlier to obtain samples, and will further explore the potential livable possibility of the South Pole in the future
