Printrbot and Darwin Aerospace Are Printing in Space
Today Printrbot and Darwin Aerospace teamed up for a project to launch a Printrbot simple into space via a high altitude balloon. The goal is to reach over 100, 000 ft while printing. Last I checked they were almost there. Both teams are following the craft via GPS coordinates in atwo chase vehicles. This is exciting news as NASA has paid millions of dollars to fund a similar project. Check back as we will be updating with their progress on this mission.
