Japan Developing Construction Machines to Build in Space

The Japanese are always inventing something and this time their creation is meant to help with building habitats for humans on Mars and the moon.

According to reports The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency together with construction company Kajima is developing an autonomous construction system which will allow humans to deliver instructions to machinery to carry out the work on Mars or the moon.

The machinery will be equipped with GPS and accelerometers using tablet computers.

The machinery will also be able to communicate with each other, so they don’t get in each other’s way and hamper construction.

The Japanese hope to have the machinery ready to construct habitats for 4 to 6 people on the moon by 2030 and Mars by 2040.
