3d printed space camera

After 3-D printing pizza in space, NASA thought it would try its hand at making something a little more useful: a space telescope

When it's completed by the end of the year, the telescope and camera will have about a tenth of the parts of a typical telescope and will have been made for a fraction of the cost.
