Meet The Artist Who Wants To Build A Little Red House On The Moon

Swedish artist and entrepreneur Mikael Genberg wants to build a self-constructing home, specifically a trademark Swedish cottage, red with white gables. Complicating matters just a bit, he really hopes to build it on the Moon. The initial idea for "The Moonhouse Project" arose nearly 15 years ago when Genberg learned of the Swedish space industry's plan to build a satellite that would orbit the Moon. Why not, Genberg thought, brighten up the barren lunar landscape with some traditional Swedish architecture? The impossible dream has been in development since 2003, becoming more and more real every day. "The Moonhouse seeks to inspire people to push through our mental boundaries and change the perception of what is possible," explains the project statement. "Everyone in the world has their own personal Moonhouse -- a representation of challenges and goals and how we achieve them." More via Huffington Post.
