Today in Top Story: A 3-D printed rocket launches in Florida, but can’t quite make it to space.

Relativity Space’s Terran 1 rocket launched Wednesday night. The startup company wanted to put the rocket into a 125-mile-high orbit. But the Terran 1 failed three minutes into its flight. Relativity Space said 3-D printed metal parts made up 85% of the rocket. Larger versions of the rocket will have even more 3-D printed parts and will be reusable.

that is cool


This would be great! Imagine if all rockets could be 3D printed and reusable!!! I don't know much about 3D printing with metal, but couldn't they take old space ships and rockets etc and use them to print new ones? That way we are reusing the old to make new ones which could also be reused!

@ Cherith

You probably could do that if it did not get to much weaker melting it down(I have a 3d printer and I know you can do it with plastic)

Cool. Even if it didn't make it to space, this is a big step.
