Discover the story of Made In Space and how they grew to receive a contract from NASA to demonstrate 3D printing spacecraft parts in space.
“Only about 1% of a rocket when you see it on the launch pad is the thing that we want in space.”Jason Dunn. Chief Technology Officer, Made In Space
This basically means there is a massive energy waste happening to launch anything into our orbit. Made In Space is planning to change this, to bring more efficiency to space manufacturing.
We are curious how they will replenish the materials used by these massive 3D printers in space though. Wont they still need rockets to launch these materials to space?
Hear their fascinating journey and very strong reasons behind developing space manufacturing below:
