House on Mars – level 1

21-11-2016 15:00

People want to go to Mars. One million people can live on Mars in 2060. Elon Musk says this.

People make a model of a house. Houses like this can be on Mars. You can see the model in Greenwich, London.

The air inside the house is good. The house also gets water for you. The atmosphere on Mars is very humid. The house gets the water from the atmosphere.

People on Mars can have 3D printers. They can print everything that they need.

Difficult words: model (something which looks real, but is not), atmosphere (the air around a planet), humid (if the atmosphere is humid, there is a lot of water in it).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
