3D Printer in Space
————————–
They use micro gravity. they are making keep sacks,it takes hour and hour and half to make an object.
“It’s not only the first part printed in space, it’s really the first object truly manufactured off planet Earth, Where there was not an object before, we essentially ‘teleported’ an object by sending the bits and having it made on the printer. It’s a big milestone, not only for NASA and Made In Space, but for humanity as a whole.”

“An astronaut might be installing it on the printer,” says Mr. Aaron Kemmer, he is the chief executive officer of Made In Space in Nasa.

“As we print more parts we’ll be able to learn whether some of the effects we are seeing are caused by microgravity or just part of the normal fine-tuning process for printing,” Werkheiser said in a NASA news release. “When we get the parts back on Earth, we’ll be able to do a more detailed analysis to find out how they compare to parts printed on Earth.” Niki Werkheiser,he is program manager in Nasa.
