3D Printing in Zero Gravity  1

The goal of 3D printing, according to the collaboration of Made in Space and NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, is to take this capability to microgravity for use on the International Space Station. In space, whatever astronauts have available on orbit is what they have to use — but just like on Earth, parts break or get lost.   Watch the video…



When that happens, there’s a wait for replacement parts, or the need to have multiple spares that have to be launched. The ability to conduct 3-D printing in space could change all of that. (NASA/MSFC)
