I will discuss the possibilities of using 3D printing in space to enable manufacturing off-Earth. Next year Made in Space, Inc. will be sending the first 3D printer to the International Space Station to start this process. I will discuss why this is groundbreaking and what an additive manufacturing future can look like. Makers don't have to stop with Earth.
