Firstly, what would happen to humans when being in space? According to Google, NASA has learned that the ecosystem inside the spacecraft plays a big role in astronaut life. Microbes can change characteristics in space and microorganisms that naturally live on your body are transferred more easily from person to person in closed habitats like the space station. This means that space can affect the human body when in space.
Secondly, how will we build? According to HEROx, if the humans physically there, they have to be housed, fed and kept happy in between doing their work. If they're working from far away, there is a time delay to consider -- on Mars, the average 20-minute wait between transmission and reception means the rovers used there can't go very far. This explains how difficult it would be to contact and communicate to other people when far away from each other while building in space.
Finally, how will we be able to transfer the materials that we need across space? If we try moving life over to the planet of Mars, hauling building materials across 225 million km of space—the average distance between Earth and Mars—would be a nightmare. According to C&EN, it costs about $4,000 to launch a kilogram of material to low Earth orbit and many times that amount to send it to Mars, so trying to ship tons of concrete would be financially ruinous and logistically very difficult, says Robert P. Mueller, senior technologist for advanced products development at the Swamp Works, an innovation laboratory he cofounded at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. This explains how much money it would cost, how long it would take and how hard it would be to transfer materials into space.
In conclusion, living and transferring life into space would be financially, logistically and physically difficult. It is possible that we will discover a way to live in space in the future but at the moment, it would cost a large amount of money and time to complete such a task.
