Later this year Made In Space, in coordination with NASA, is launching the first 3D printer, specifically constructed for use in space, to the International Space Station.
In 2015 our second printer will be sent to the ISS as a permanent additive manufacturing facility. This printer will be available not only to NASA and the astronauts, but also to businesses, academics, researchers and artists - essentially everyone on Earth will have the possibility to email their hardware to space. 3D printing on-site in space will change the course of space development - from small tools to future large structures and colonization.
