National Academy of Engineering selects Wicker for committee

Ryan Wicker – Director of the Keck Center – was selected by the prestigious National Academy of Engineering to serve on the committee for Space-Based Additive Manufacturing of Space Hardware.   The committee started a year long project this week in a workshop in Washington DC to explore the possibility of fabricating space hardware in space with additive manufacturing.   A NRC report will be created as result of this work and is expected to be published in June of 2014.
