Translating Earthly necessities for alien life is a daunting task, requiring careful thought on harsh environments and resident’s well-being.

The Celestial Loop is a meticulously designed lunar habitat, which seeks to enhance the lives of moon dwellers by providing a serene yet dynamic environment, blending with its surroundings while promoting sustainability.

Celestial Loop is divided into 2 parts; the loop and the spin engine. The loop is meticulously constructed on Earth using radiation-resistant materials such as FRP, lead, and hydrogenated panels. Transported to the moon by linking it to a spacecraft. Upon arrival it connects to the spin engine, enabling villa rotation to simulate Earth’s gravity, inhabitants can control or halt the spin engine to venture outside. It relies mainly on solar energy, with nuclear energy planned for the future. Then it utilizes innovative 3D printing to create facades from moon regolith for radiation protection and unique aesthetics. Additional features include a regolith 3D printer for furnitures, a smart screen, hydroponic systems, oxygen generator, water recycling, and immersive LED lighting with speakers, all controlled via smart home automation.

The Celestial Loop is finely crafted to withstand lunar conditions, prioritize human welfare, and promote environmental balance, offering a sustainable moon lifestyle.
