NASA and Made In Space make history by successfully 3D printing first object in space

"History was made on November 24th at 9:28pm GMT, when the first 3D printer built to operate in space successfully manufactured its first part on the International Space Station (ISS). This is the first time that hardware has been additively manufactured in space, as opposed to launching it from Earth."

Included in the payload of SpaceX’s Dragon spacecraft, scheduled to blast off to the International Space Station this Saturday, will be a 3D printer designed to operate in zero gravity. Contracted as the “3D Printing in Zero-G Experiment,” this project will demonstrate the capability of utilizing a 3D printer for in-space additive manufacturing technology. Here's our infographic (http://buff.ly/XNaG8c) on the status of 3D printing technology and possible applications for space. It’s based on the recent NRC report 3D Printing in Space, which is free to download here: http://buff.ly/XNaG8d
