I sometimes wonder if the scientists studying these things have ever been outside their own labs...

Wow, I didn't know you could press dirt into bricks! We should try that here on Earth! I wonder if I can get a billion dollar grant to find ways to do that. I am sure if I spent a few seconds on YouTube someone may have an idea or two. What a bunch of idiots! lol I wonder how many of our tax dollars the will waste trying to figure out that we already have that technology. Whats next? Figuure out how to get power from the sun?

In their defense, compressing Martian soil and getting it to stay isn't quite as assured as Earth soil.  But the article makes it seem like CEB is a new discovery.
