No matter what you take with you when going up into space, it’s going to be complicated and expensive. Very expensive. If we talk about longer missions, we better come up with something sustainable. Tommaso Ghidini, Head of the Materials Technology Section at the European Space Agency, might have an answer!

Tommaso and his team have already come quite close to realising this goal with some mind blowing 3D printing results. What’s even more interesting is that this technology is not only made for space, but can also be used in other environments.

Find out more at TEDxESA about this groundbreaking technique that has the potential to completely change the way we think and work!

    I found Tommaso’s TED very inspiring. 3D printing is much more than a new promising technology: it is a major paradigm shift in the way we think and we shape the world around us. It will also change our aesthetics, as Barocco did in Europe’s 16th century.
