"The printing process itself is very similar to plastic extruding 3D printers on Earth," said Made In Space engineer, Brad Kohlenberg, to Gizmodo , "but the adjustments that were needed to make the printer work both in micro gravity and aboard the closed-loop system of the ISS necessitated building a new printer from the ground up."
...The elephant in the room—weight—was always an issue, but Kohlenberg says that " the requirements from NASA for this experiment were such that we did not have to do any additional mass reduction beyond our initial design."
"Everything that has ever been built for space has been built on the ground," says Made In Space CEO Aaron Kemmer. "Tremendous amounts of money and time have been spent to place even the simplest of items in space to aid exploration and development. This new capability will fundamentally change how the supply and development of space missions is looked at."
...UN secretary general in Mali, said ending smuggling is not the job of the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilisation Mission in Mali (Minusma). "Minusma focuses on stabilisation, including the protection of civilians and ceasefire monitoring. Counter-terrorism [and] drug interdiction is not in our mandate so that is not what we are going to do. Northern Mali needs development but that is going to take five, 10, 15 years" he said
