Andrew Morgan, a NASA’s astronaut, returned from a 272- day stay on board Inter National Space Station where he conducted experiments with human tissues to 3D print human organs. 

Andrew, who is also a battle field doctor has witnessed very stressful accidents in the past. He quoted of having seen young soldier’s body torn apart by the blasts which originally gave him the inspiration to print organs to transplant into injured soldier’s body.

Morgan has created living tissue, cell by cell, operating 3D printer using what he calls “bio-ink”.

ISS makes the process ideal with its zero gravity nature. Us companies Techshot and NScrypt has developed the Bio Fabrication Facility that was launched into orbit in 2019 which is yet to receive an upgrade this year. 

The Facility is designed to print organ shaped tissues using human cells.  The team is ambitious of printing entire human organs in space by refining their equipment’s.

Experiments conducted on the International Space Station by Andrew Morgan showed organs could be printed a low gravity environment (Credit: Nasa)
