Come help us design a fiberglass spinning machine to be used to wind 5 meter modules for Mars habitats. The concept is that the first Martian settlers extract materials from the soil and air to make fiberglass thread and resin. Then using a fiberglass spinning machine they manufacture large pressure-vessels (cylinders) to use as habitat structures.
We will be designing this system during IAP, leading to a later project to build a small scale working prototype.
Start your IAP with a spin!
