NASA Announces $125,000 for a New 3D Printer Project

NASA has announced to fund $125,000 for a new 3D printer project. The funds will go to Anjan Contractor to create a 3D printer. The device will make pizza for astronauts. This will be really good for them to finally get rid of freeze-dried ice cream and Tang in space.

The 3D printer will be an amazing invention for astronauts at International Space Station and other who will be sent to Mars some day.

Eating the same types of food day after day has been a major concern that astronomers experience in space.

The major challenge for NASA is to increase the shelf life of food in space that is usually eaten on earth.

NASA has initiated the process to find a solution to the problem by allocating the necessary funds to Anjan Contractor of Texas. The firm will aim to develop a 3D printer that can make delicious pizza along with exotic foods.

According to Contractor, "The way we are working on it is. We take moisture out, and in that form it will last maybe 30 years". Contractor is expecting to come up with the food-printing device by the end of this year.

The technology is believed to be eventually available for use at homes.
