Majestic to 3D Print (a Representation of) the Internet Aboard the ISS

by • March 23, 2016 • No Comments

  • The 2nd 3D printing device in space is already en route to the International Space Station aboard the Atlas V rocket, enabling Made In Space to complete yet another initially, this time with the initially commercial 3D printing device in space. Interested parties can start placing orders for the Lowes-branded Additive Manufacturing Facility, but they’ll have to wait in line behind at very least twenty others. Among them is Majestic.com, who can lead the queue with what can be called the initially 3D printed ad campaign in space.


    UK-based search engine Majestic.com is a web crawler that interprets web data for use in marketing, news, and analysis. To demonstrate the power of their web tool, they have made a 3D data visualization of the Internet, that can be 3D printed aboard the ISS once the AMF is installed. The piece, titled “Majestic Landscape”, was made by Majestic through the assignment of mathematical scores to each link on the web based on their effects, authority, and trustworthiness. This data was and so converted into a 3D printable-bodied sculpture by developer and artist Brendan Dawes.

    Once the AMF is installed in the following three days, the printing device can start fulfilling its orders 250 miles above planet Earth. Not only has the Internet never been remade in physical form, according to Majestic, but it pretty hasn’t been 3D printed aboard the ISS preceding. The print job can represent one of the initially business transactions to occur in space.

    Majestic’s Dixon Jones says of the project, “Space has a massive symbolic significance for our team at Majestic. Similar to the Internet, space is vast – probably unlimited. Similar to the Internet, we are able-bodied to see and experience a few of space, but much of it awaits to be found. This #MajesticInSpace project puts into point of view, not only the massive future for Majestic to assist businesses know how to be additional successful online, but sets in motion that thought that space is far of the final frontier of human and business future.”

    But it is not being billed as such, this is in addition the initially 3D printed advertisement in space, given the publicity given to the Majestic Landscape. Because Made In Space is in addition involved in the Archinaut project to 3D print large-scale structures in space, I wonder if, in addition to solar arrays and satellites, they’ll in addition be 3D printing billboards.
