Made In Space plans to turn asteroids into spaceships using 3D printing technologies

Made In Space, the California-based pioneers of off-world 3D printers, plans to use 3D printing to turn asteroids into autonomous spacecrafts that can potentially fly to mining stations in outer space. This plan is part of the Reconstituting Asteroids into Mechanical Automata (RAMA) Project, which is funded by NASA’s Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program. Through the RAMA […]

Chinese scientists conduct ceramic 3D printing tests for off-world construction

Scientists at the Technology and Engineering Center for Space Utilization of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have successfully completed an experiment to 3D print ceramic parts containing lunar dust under microgravity. Using Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology on board the Airbus ZERO-G parabolic flight aircraft run by Novespace of Switzerland. The 3D printing experiment further explores […]

Review: V&A exhibition The Future Starts Here: Made In Space, Apple and Chelsea Manning featured

Self-driving cars, Apple’s corporate campus, and the 3D printed face of U.S. military whistleblower Chelsea Manning are currently on display at London’s V&A Museum. Part of The Future Starts Here, the items contribute to an exhibition of 100 projects credited with “shaping the world of tomorrow.” A concept that reaches broadly across many available and developing technologies, it […]

NASA green-lights Made In Space metal 3D printer for Mars

In 2017, American microgravity 3D printer developer Made In Space was awarded a NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract for the development of its Vulcan Hybrid Manufacturing System. Now, just over a year later, NASA has renewed this SBIR for the Vulcan’s continued development. Once complete, the Vulcan will be capable of working more […]
