Cheating Gravity – Imagine you’re planning a trip to Mars anytime soon. On arrival you need to find yourself a place to stay. Bringing some construction material is virtually impossible. So, one way is to print your own habitat from grains of Martian sand. But how do you test 3D printing without gravity… on earth?

Well, some rocket scientists thought up a solution and the next step was to realise it. Teun will share the amazing experience of developing and realising a super lightweight space research capsule.
