Tiny 3D printing factories in Space.
As mentioned in the article from Varda Space and Motley Fool,¨ Varda Space got $53M in venture funding from investors including Khosla Ventures, Lux Capital, Founders Fund, Caffeinated Capital, General Catalyst, and Also Capital. Each factory weighing in at just 120 kilograms (265 pounds) . They will finish goods over the course of three months in orbit. Crucially, these factories will also include “re-entry modules” to return the products manufactured in space to Earth — which is the ultimate goal of putting factories in space. Even if Varda’s space factories are able to successfully turn raw materials into finished products in space.¨
