3d printed moon baseSo we can 3D print regular sized things, and really, really small things. What about huge things?
Soon enough. The European Space Agency plans to 3D print a whole building, and on the moon.

Certainly it will take some time, and they didnt announce a set date. But imagine what 3D printing technology can do for space workers. No more need to send a $8M rocket to replace a broken tool.

Also the fact that the 3D printer is the obvious ancestor of the Replicator.

I wonder if you will be able to see this base with the naked eye.
