International Space Station Getting a 3-D Printer, Will Save Space Agencies Time and Money

The International Space Station (ISS) will get its first 3-D printer by the end of this month aboard an unmanned SpaceX Dragon spacecraft.

According to Space.com, the resupply mission is set to take off Sept. 19 and the 3-D printer will be on board. SpaceX has experienced setbacks with its launches before, so the ISS may not be guaranteed to get the printer before Oct. rolls around.
