“The concept is exciting, but it is chal-
lenging,” she said. “There are a lot of hurdles,
but I think eventually we will have multiple
flights and repeat experiments and technolo-
gy will be more and more advanced.”
She expects that this area of research will
continue to expand and grow.
“If you are looking at the number of
people that are attending conferences and
presenting and the number of technology
groups that are collaborating with researchers to send things to the space station, it is
just growing incredibly,” said Malany.
It’s not just researchers that are taking
advantage of opportunities at the ISS.
In our increasingly connected society,
it is typical to purchase products that were
manufactured in all corners of the world. But
what if you could buy a product made outside of this world? Made in Space is working
to make that futuristic concept a reality.
The in-space manufacturing company,
founded in 2010, works to facilitate the
creation of products made at the ISS for use
in space, as well as products made at the ISS
for use on Earth. They’ve already made an
impressive start—in 2014 the company fab-
ricated the first ever product in space and in
2016 they created the first off-plant product
for a commercial customer. Made in Space
also created the first 3D printers for micro-
gravity operation, an accomplishment that
could eventually allow astronauts traveling in
deep space to print, plate and electronically
connect new components for their vessels
and repair and upgrade their systems with-
out direct resupply from earth.
“We are taking advantage of the unique
environment and the way that physics
change on orbit to create useful products
for both space and for Earth,” said Justin
