Our 3D printer is Launching to the ISS in 35 hours, Ask Us Anything!
We are Made In Space, a four year old space company based out of Mountain View, CA. We are doing this AMA along with a representative of NASA MSFC who contracted the development of this printer. The printer is currently scheduled for launch to the International Space Station on September 20th at 2:16AM aboard a SpaceX rocket. Next year we will be sending up a larger printer which will be commercially available to anyone on Earth!
By this time next week there will be another way to get hardware to space, you can email it.

EDIT: Thank you all for the great questions! Stay tuned for our launch in 33 hours!
