Mangala is a 6.5 m high dome-shaped 3D printed Martian habitat designed for a long-term mission. The domical shell structure ensures an even flow of air, temperature, and pressure inside the habitat. The shell structure is inspired by Geodesic Hoberman’s sphere that protects the habitat from dust storms and helps to maintain even distribution of loads throughout the structure. In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) technique is utilized for the construction of the habitat with 300 mm thick Martian concrete that will protect the habitat from radiation. Two layers of RF Aerogel are integrated with structure to protect the habitat from extreme environments on Earth. The topmost part of the dome consists of solar spots that capture the sunlight and reflect it to the vertical hydroponics garden in the central core. The habitat has recreational areas, exercise areas, personal spaces, kitchens, airlocks, workstations, a greenhouse, laboratories, storage area, and communication systems
