3D-printed pizza in space. Soon




Chance to sample freshly prepared pizza in space has become one step closer thanks to a new 3D-printer from the company Anjan Contractor. For those who do not know, this is the company won last year grant from NASA in the amount of 125,000 dollars for the creation of 3D-printer that can print food during long space missions astronauts. Currently, the device is in working prototype stage.

Created by 3D-printer is capable of printing pizza layers. And although when viewing the demo video below may seem that the printer is preparing everything, but obviously not the pizza, the creators say in finished form the resulting product is very tasty. According to the creators of this device, 3D-printer cartridges will be equipped with food ingredients, which will last for 30 years of storage.

The possibility of such long-term storage is a very important component to fly long distances. In the end, in space, you can not also at any opportunity to go to the nearest supermarket for new products. To increase the storage capability of the same for the printed pizza ingredients Contractor looking for the most suitable way to reduce the moisture level of these ingredients, and proteins, and also processing into a powder carbohydrates and other nutrients.

According to the company, for cooking pizzas printed only takes 70 seconds. If NASA gives green light to this technology, in the relatively near future astronauts will be able to prepare themselves for themselves 3D-printed fast food, and not rely solely on the freeze-dried foods and canned goods.
