Space rocks 3D

To remove water from asteroids and other useful materials to the planet’s resources, gathered by a space rocks 3D, metal powders using an object’s 3D-printed.
“With the ever 3D-printed material from outer space is the first part and the zero gravity environment in space by a 3D printer can produce a design that is reminiscent of the” Planetary Resources representatives, wide by 3.4 inches (8.7 cm) long by about 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) and 8.8 ounces (250 grams), which is about the object.
“Print materials used asteroid (or meteorite) Argentina, Campo del Cielo was the source of the impact, and iron, nickel and cobalt made off – similar to the refinery-grade steel material ‘space rocks 3D’,” he said.
Sees 3D printing as a key that is not only planetary resource unit is based in Washington state, the Consumer Electronics Show in Las vegetarian planet’s resources, was unveiled on Thursday a complex geometric object, to build 3D Systems has worked with the company in the field of space technology going forward. For example, NASA officials voyaging spacecraft by making space rocks 3D printing supplies and spare parts of the earth for posts less dependent on their home planet, the human exploration of the solar system could help in opening said.
Indeed, the space agency recently in micro-gravity technology works well, to see the International Space Station to launch a space rocks 3D printer has been in space together with California-based startup. (On the results, said NASA officials and representatives of the space created are very encouraging.)
The main component of space rocks 3D fuel – Planetary Resources’ Asteroid Mining ambition to split into its constituent hydrogen and oxygen plans, which start with water. If all goes according to plan, then within the next 10 years if their spacecraft propellant tank top-up, allowing the “gas stations” will be sold in the space. Platinum and other precious metals from
Company aims to eventually mine. (Another company, Deep Space Industries, the same ambition.)
Planetary Resources is already a spacecraft in Earth orbit, a little CUBESAT airplane, future asteroid mining will need to check that the software and other key technology to test that deployed from the International Space Station last July called Arkyd-3R.
