Julia Heisler's curator insight, April 23, 7:50 PM

This article depicts how 3D printing technology is clearly catching on in the aerospace industry. Over the last few months we've seen numerous 3D printed parts being created that are not just prototypes, but are actually heading to space themselves. Remember these 3D printed satellite parts from last month? And in terms of aerospace innovation, NASA definitely can't stay behind. While they have already been using 3D printers on quite a large scale, they have just revealed that they have made a rocket engine part that can actually be used as part of a space program. The part itself is a copper combustion chamber liner, a crucial component that needs to withstand extreme temperatures and pressures. This relates to international relations because it describes the 3D printing industry all over the world.
