Made In Space, Expectations Management, and the Business of In-Space Manufacturing
After having proven its base technology (3D printing) through NASA solicitations and contracts, Made In Space was searching for a viable commercial application. But the business case for the leading candidate, high-quality fiber optic cable for use on Earth, remained uncertain. In 2019, Made In Space secured a major contract from NASA for early work on a much grander project, called Archinaut, to build architectures in space that would enable off-Earth habitation. Was that opportunity a more promising path for Made In Space, or did its ambition risk distracting Made In Space from its more managed, incremental strategy? Which strategy would enable MIS to retain its central place in facilitating the development of the space economy?
