IGLUNA 2019: A Habitat in Ice

The first ESA_Lab Demonstrator Project IGLUNA offered students opportunities to participate in an international, collaborative project on a visionary space topic: A Habitat in Ice.

In one year, 20 student teams from various disciplines gathered their knowledge to design a habitat potentially suitable for an extreme environment, such as the Moon.

More than 150 students from 9 European countries designed their prototypes during the autumn semester 2018 and built their modules in the spring semester 2019. From the 17th of June until the full disassembly on the 3rd of July, the results came together during a Field Campaign inside the glacier cave of the Klein Matterhorn and an exhibition in the village of Zermatt, Switzerland.
