NASA developing 3D printer 'food replicator'

7 posts in this topic

$125,000 has been given to NASA for the development of a device capable of producing 3D printed food.

The challenges are multifold – not least among them producing something palatable out of a printer – but the idea is that with enough development, NASA might be able to come up with something that beats the current rations sent to places like the International Space Station.

I'll have a medium Pepperoni, extra cheese, no anchovies.

$125,000 doesn't seem like much of a budget for something like this. How much did NASA spend designing that special "space pen"?

After all the fuss over pink slime, I wonder what the raw material used for printing will be.

the money is nothing. It would hardly impact my mortgage if I used it to put a payment on it. Come on they give other groups particularly military more than that. They can do better than that.
