  • Atlas in Space – 3D Printing in Space

    August 3, 2017 ...

    With an Atlas rocket launch due today, 3 August 2017, we thought it poignant to talk about how Additive Manufacturing (AM) is playing a huge part in space travel. There have been more than 600 Atlas launches from NASA’s Cape Canaveral. This might give the impression that satellite launches and space travel is becoming run-of-the-mill, but each launch is the ...
