The future of space exploration

3D printers are almost everywhere, but not on the moon yet. We want to change that and this talk gives you a little insight into the how and whys of 3D printing on the moon.

Having a printer in space is a great idea, it allows you to produce things in space, without having to actually launch it with a rocket. Some want to mine asteroids for that, we want to use lunar regolith. This would make it possible to build structures on the moon that are essential for build a permanent outpost there.
Even further down the line one might build the first interplanetary refuelling outpost in space for rockets and go even deeper into space.

We want to show you how this dream could become reality, what techniques are of interest, and how it could be implemented.
