UCalgary takes 3D printing “From Colon to Colony”

Space is the ultimate test of survival. With few resources beyond Moon dust and regolith, astronauts must prepare all the necessary kit for month long expeditions ahead of time, and recycle as much waste as possible. One well known fact of recycling aboard the International Space Station (ISS) is that there is a system that […]
