Indian startup delivers customized rocket engines for fast and cheap space access
Space system manufacturer Redwire has unveiled plans to deploy 3D printing onboard an upcoming commercial space station known as the ‘Orbital Reef.’
In a major first, American startup Relativity Space is working on two different models of entirely 3D-printed rockets!
Rocket manufacturer Relativity Space has released a time-lapse video of a 3D printed nose cone build for its Terran 1 rocket.
NASA’s latest International Space Station resupply mission included a machine meant to demonstrate 3D printing regolith (that is, loose soil or rock) on the Moon and similar extraterrestrial surfaces.
Beginning with a country that has been extremely active lately in the space economy, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak recently revealed in a government statement that they are planning a joint space mission with Saudi Arabia, and are currently training Saudi Arabian astronauts.
Relativity Space raised $650 million led by Fidelity and joined by investors, including BlackRock and Tiger Global, as the company steps up work on a fully reusable rocket that will attempt to challenge Elon Musk’s SpaceX in less than three years.
Relativity Space is pushing the boundaries of 3D-printing to build rockets but CEO Tim Ellis sees the company’s influence reaching beyond the space industry.
A technological revolution that may pry open the frontier of space to unprecedented human expansion, and it all starts with code.
