3D Printing in Space

At around $10,000 per pound, shipping anything into space is extremely expensive. Most of the brain power in the new space race has focused on more efficient, multi-use rockets. But a small company called Made In Space has turned that idea on its head: Instead of designing and building better vehicles to get things into orbit, why not just build those things in space? In March 2016, Made In Space sent their second 3D printer to the International Space Station, giving interplanetary travel a huge boost in the process.
