First 3D printed rocket Relativity Space.

Relativity Space to build the first rocket 3D Printing factory.

According to Relativity CEO Tim Ellis Relativity Space, ¨the 3D-printing rocket builder, is making another big bet: Developing a fully reusable rocket, designed to match the power and capability of SpaceX’s workhorse Falcon 9 rockets.

Really an obvious evolution. It’s the same architecture, the same propellant, the same factory, the same 3D printers, the same avionics and the same team.

I’ve always been a huge fan of reusability. No matter how you look at it – even with 3D printing, and dropping the cost, and [increasing the] automation of a launch vehicle – making it reusable has got to be part of that future.¨
