3D Printing in Space is Now Possible Thanks to Startup Made in Space

3D printing in space is complicated. Between the lack of gravity, lack of air, and other obstacles, getting a 3D printer to work in space is nothing short of miraculous. A startup named Made in Space is helping astronauts do just that. The company developed a method to 3D print outside of the International Space Station (ISS). Astronauts can repair, upgrade, and prototype without having to go inside a space capsule.
