Manufacturing in Space
An additive manufacturing process was recently tested in zero-gravity conditions in an effort to develop solutions for manufacturing in outer space. One thing about additive processes—they don’t create loose chips!
“3D printing and in-space manufacturing will dramatically change the way we look at space exploration, commercialization and mission design today,” says Aaron Kemmer, CEO and co-founder of Made In Space. “The possibilities range from building on-demand parts for human missions to building large space habitats that are optimized for space.”
