NASA Is Using MakerBots To Support R&D

A group of interns at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, are helping to build out an Innovation Lab stocked with “rapid prototyping machines like 3-D printers, micro mills, lathes, laser cutting and marking systems, and other advanced technologies.”

You know what that means! More MakerBots at NASA. That’s NASA intern Kirby Carmack in the photo above working on one of the Thing-O-Matics in the Innovation Lab. This article says that once the Lab is complete, it will “support Goddard research and development at low or no cost.”

MakerBots supporting research and development at Goddard Space Flight Center?

We’ll take it.
