If you’ve been following our #MajesticInSpace project we launched back in March, you’ll know we’re (hopefully) looking to see some Majestic 3D printing action on the International Space Station (courtesy of NASA and Made in Space) later this month.
To pass the time while we wait, we thought we’d ask some our industry friends a wacky question to get their earthly gray matter cosmically engaged and thinking if they had the opportunity to 3D print anything (ANYTHING) in space, what would it be and why?
These are their answers…..
|“I would 3D print a second space capsule (with fridge full of champagne) to tow behind me. I’ve seen far too many scary things go wrong in sci-fi movies!” – Mike Grehan – CMO and Managing Director at Acronym
|“I would like to 3D print a replica of a spray paint can to note that street art will eventually too live in outer space. Yes, Banksy will ultimately mark up a space station.” – Geoffrey Colon – Communications Designer at Microsoft – Author of Disruptive Marketing (geoffreycolon.net)
|“I’d print a 3D pen and a 3D Moleskine to write all this amazing stuff down because HOLY CHEEZITS I’M IN SPACE!!!” – Ann Handley – Head of Content at MarketingProfs
|“I would 3d print a stylus. Or several styluses so that I can continue to write. Writing and getting your thoughts down is important, so having a tool to be able to write is important. I would also use that stylus on a 3d printed etch-a-sketch, so I can write and draw funny pictures.” – Bill Hartzer – Senior VP at Advice Interactive (https://www.billhartzer.com)
|“I would print a pair of moon boots so that when people ask me, “Hey, where’d you get those cute boots?” I can tell them from space!”– Annie Cushing – Founder of Annielytics
|“In space, I would 3D print an elevator, to bring my kids up and see the world they live in. It would be such a shame to keep that to myself, so why not create something that helps more enjoy that as well!” – Bas van den Beld – Consultant, Trainer and Speaker and the Founder of State of Digital
|“I would 3D print a 3D printer to be able to 3D print as much as I want in space… after a while might get a bit boring until we reach our destiny, might need to 3D print tools to fix something on the ship, or weapons to protect myself against aliens that attack me, etc.”– Aleyda Solis– Founder and International SEO Consultant at Orainti
|“Print anything? ANYTHING? Well, in that case I would print a fully appointed space resort station and a spaceship that I could use to bring guests up from Earth. We’d have a grand old time 250 miles up.” – Lee Odden-CEO of TopRank Marketing
|“Being in space is an unknown. I have no idea how noisy it would be and I am a terrible sleeper so I would have to 3D print some earplugs as I can’t stand any noise when I am trying to sleep!!”– Samantha Noble – Client Strategy Director at Koozai
|“I would 3D print enough Lego bricks to build a Star Wars Death Star. Literally building a Death Start in space… in zero gravity would be the realization of countless hours when I was 8. Plus, Legos wouldn’t hurt if you “stepped” on them in space.” – John Gagnon – Bing Ads Evangelist at Microsoft
|“I would print a magical unicorn figure and proudly march it around the space station so as to be the first known unicorn in space. Unicorns are meant for space travel, duh.” –Larry Kim– Founder of WordStream
|“By the time I get to space, we’ll be able to print molecules so I would print a panoply of Earth scents – starting with rich fertile soil, then growing grass, a variety of flowers, a newborn baby’s breath, piney woods, seaside at high tide, Sunday breakfast, etc.” – Jim Sterne – Founder of eMetrics Summit
|“I would go with a 3d printed camera to capture all the amazing sights that I would see in space. I’d also opt for a few custom lenses to be printed to ensure I had the right lens to capture the perfect photos.”– David Iwanow – Former classified SEO Product Manager at eBay now working with BlueGlass
|“I would 3D print a record player along with a copy of David Bowie’s self-titled 1969 release which opens with the classic track “Space Oddity.” Too meta? Too cliche? Are there copyright or piracy laws in space? Either way, I think Bowie would have appreciated the nod.” – Jason Miller, Global Content Marketing Leader at LinkedIn
So there you have it! Fourteen out-of-this-world ideas that will keep astronauts busy until we can build on Mars!
