NASA Takes 3D Printing to Next Logical Conclusion: 3D Printed Trees

In August of last year, we released a story about how chief scientist of synthetic biology at the NASA Ames Research Center, Lynn Rothschild, and Diana Gentry, were working on a project to 3D print “biomaterials out of thin air.” The team has been hard at work and has relayed some of their progress towards 3D printing synthetic biomaterials using cellular arrays.
