How 3D printing could change the space industry

Made in Space Chief Strategy Officer Mike Chen discusses how 3D printing can change the game of space exploration.

Mike Chen, Chief strategy officer at Made In Space says that launching a 3D printer into space will enable huge efficiencies in space exploration.

Currently, any parts needed to fix the International Space Station have to be taken up with astronauts in a rocket.

Sending a printer into space will allow objects to be made in orbit, without wasting fuel carrying extra parts.
