No telescope? No problem! Now you can explore all the nooks and crannies of the moon in the palm of your hand using a 3D-printed moon model and augmented- reality (AR) app.
Future astronauts could turn their pee and breath into nutrients and raw materials for 3D printers with the help of some industrious microbes, new research suggests.
Made In Space just took another step toward its goal of building telescopes and other large structures off Earth.
The first-ever commercial space station will become a manufacturing hub just a few years after reaching orbit, if everything goes according to plan.
Moon explorers could one day build their houses from bricks made out of lunar soil, or regolith, using just the energy of the sun, according to a new experiment by the European Space Agency (ESA).
The first printing segment of NASA's 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge is now complete, and the U.S. space agency has awarded $100,000 to the winning two teams.
To protect its spacecraft from the rigors of deep space, a team of NASA engineers is turning to a time-honored — and battle-proven — solution: chain mail.
A new method could mix dust from the moon or Mars with a series of solvents to create flexible, tough 3D-printed tools.
Asteroid mining, giant orbiting internet antennas and space-based solar power could create a space economy that brings a Mars colony within humanity's reach.
Early next year, California-based startup Made In Space plans to launch a machine to the International Space Station that will produce ZBLAN optical fiber.
To make life easier for astronauts, an electronics company is asking college students to design tools that astronauts can 3D print aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
"Star Trek" science may be fanciful, but the iconic franchise's creators were prescient in a number of ways.
John Hornick, author of "3D Printing Will Rock the World," said 3D printing will fundamentally alter the way people manufacture things, and that includes working in space.
