Scientists offer a strange way to change the soil on Mars

Scientists at the University of Manchester have come up with a terrible new way to turn Martian soil into more durable material for building future colonies on the Red Planet
Specifically, they suggest mixing human blood, urine, sweat, or even tears with the dust of the Moon or Mars to form a glue that can be used to build or 3D print entire buildings.
In other words, they say that we could literally use the blood, sweat and tears of astronauts to build their new homes in a distant world. This is a creative use of on-site resources that could allow future Martian settlers to skip the costly process of sending building materials from home.
“Scientists have tried to develop viable technologies to produce concrete-like materials on the surface of Mars, but we never stopped thinking that all the while, the answer might be within us,” said Aled Roberts of the University of Manchester. research statement.
This is not the first creative idea of ​​building future shelters. Other researchers have suggested using insect polymers, human urine, or even fungi.
