Abstract The colonization of Mars will require obtaining building materials which can be put in place and processed into buildings via various constructive technologies. We tried to use artificial Martian ground – AMG (GEO PAT 11-234 (2015)) and special resins for the preparation of building block prototypes. The composite material has been obtained based on the AMG as filler, epoxy resin (type ED-20) and tetraethoxysilane – TEOS. We have studied strengthening – softening temperatures and water…

New synthetic biology efforts toward using bacterial biofilms as platforms for the synthesis and secretion of programmable nanomaterials are described, with particular focus on self-assembling functional amyloids found in bacterial bioFilms as re-engineerable modular nanomolecular components.


Microbiological Remediation of Martian Soil for Future Terraformation of the Planet
Introduction: In order to survive in harsh Martian environment living organisms have to develop specific adaptations to cold anoxic conditions and intense radiation. Introduction of such forms of
New model of Mars surface irradiation for the climate simulation chamber ‘Artificial Mars’
Abstract A new model of the Mars surface irradiation has been developed for the imitation of radiation–temperature parameters within Mars Climate Simulation Chamber (MCSC). In order to determine the
