NASA is going to bring to the ISS 3D-printer


The world in which bionic implants and even food will be produced through technology 3D-printing is near. However, organizations such as NASA and the Made in Space Inc believe that the possibility of 3D-printing is not limited to the use of the earth, and have developed the world’s first microgravity (ie, able to work in zero gravity) 3D-printer. The device has already been tested successfully on a supersonic aircraft in a controlled gravity and is now going to be sent to the International Space Station.

If all goes well, their device will not only be the first in the history of the 3D-printer that will be used outside the earth’s atmosphere – this is generally the first device by which one can create other objects in space.

Charles Bolden, one of the leaders of this project, NASA says:

“Since NASA has far-reaching plans, for example, in a program to send a man to Mars , then our task is to develop the appropriate technology that will reduce the volume and weight of the transported cargo spacecraft. Who knows, maybe in the near future, the astronauts will be able to use 3D-printing technology that will directly into the space to create the necessary tools for the job. ”
