Extra Terrestrial Manufacturing
Make in Space for Space | Make in Space for Earth
A research group at IIT Madras
The human endeavor to explore space like never before including creating settlements in far away locations, will require extensive time to be spent on-board a space craft just to reach there. In addition, the lure of micro-gravity and the advantages it offers to control, and tailor material structures cannot be ignored. The near future will require technologies that will enable manufacturing things in space - for use in space and, for bringing back to use on the earth.
