One of the biggest barriers to building a business in outer space is the cost. Lifting just a few tons of material into space costs anywhere from tens of millions to hundreds of millions of dollars, depending on where you want to put it. That's where startup Made In Space comes in. Its cofounders, who are alumni of the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, have developed a 3D printer capable of working in space, which is already producing objects for its customers. And they're aiming their goals even higher-working towards a robotic system capable of manufacturing large objects in orbit.
