3D Printing

Carrying out lengthy space expeditions poses a somewhat obvious yet problematic risk: Scarce resources and a lack of specialized medical care.

Hence, the drive for tissue transplants while on long-term space exploration missions.

Moscow-based 3D Bioprinting Solutions was able to bioprint bone tissue in micro-gravity by growing fragments of bone structure on the International Space Station (ISS). The bone tissue was bioprinted using the Organ.Autobioprinter, which was designed to perform this unique task in zero gravity.
