This video was fantastic. I love how it embraced the philosophical implications. I thought Scott's comments at the end about the future of 3D printing rockets were very interesting. Man, what a great video.

Seriously rooting for these guys. They seem like they are having as much fun as they are innovating space launches. Positive vibes!

I love that this rocket scientist nerd threw on his black jacket, leather pants and flashy belt buckle and just owned it and acted like himself. He rocked it.

Regardless of whether this sort of engineering is practical, this guy has a wonderful vision and a fantastic attitude in general.

That reverse warp design blows my mind man!

It actually makes a lot of sense for 3d printed parts to be sturdier than their contemporary counterparts. While contemporary welding has a variation in density and tensile strength focused on the weld lines, 3d printed parts are able to spread applied forces around their entire structure, which puts less stress on any one part.

Always wondered if it will ever be possible to print stuff with/as metals and rock(minerals?). Great stuff. I like the explanation at the end too, its not about who is a billionare or who is poor, its about enriching what it means to be a human being.

A great story, makes you wonder what else will be metal 3D printed that we never imagined. Thanks for the tour and the information.

The old joke. "If the weld is stronger than the metal, then why don't we make the whole thing from weld?" Finally joke becomes reality

This is incredible. It's science fiction come to life. I'm so excited for their future.

Love your description of 3-D printing as that thing you thought would be great but never get a result you're happy with. The beginning of that industry was dominated by start-ups that couldn't or wouldn't do the quality control needed to produce machines that actually worked as advertised. Lack of government or private lawsuits or arrests encouraged this.

I love that the guy showing him around genuinely loves what he's doing 👌 good too see

Love that Scott is credited as "Internet Rocket Scientist". Just how he describes himself, and incredibly accurate 😂

This is an awesome video. I originally thought it was a gimmick rocket, but after listening to the way he explained how they are printing it and all the work that went into it I found myself in love with the idea. This is awesome.

I'm blown away by this. Just a small rectification though. That shell shape would be ''easy'' (not impossible) to machine on a large milling machine but what they say is truth. A lot of shape can be printed and cannot be machined. Really impressive work. I hope the y succeed.
