NASA To Send 3D Printers Into Space

NASA is reportedly planning to fly a 3D printer into space for the first time. This special 3D printer is made to function in a zero-gravity environment and, if successful, would enable astronauts on the space station to print out needed parts right onboard without waiting for the next resupply mission. Such on-demand capability could revolutionize the constrained space supply chain, further validating the legitimacy of 3D printing.
