Made of Mars is learning to build with the materials found on Mars. Specifically basalt rock fibers that can be woven into fabrics. Made of Mars is developing the techniques to work the basalt fabrics into products needed for a future on Mars.
Quote: Building for Earth and Beyond.
Basalt will let us build for a better future on Earth. It is the most abundant and widespread resource on Earth. It does not compete with food or fossil fuels, the way cotton and synthetics do. In a future of asteroid mining, Basalt products can be created with minimal environmental impact on Earth. Basalt will be the basis of a future on Mars and a better life on Earth.
Made of Mars has a Kickstarter campaign with consumer products using basalt fabric. Or, you can sign up and experience an expedition to the most Mars-like terrains on Earth!
