“I think we’re just scratching the surface on commercial space station opportunities. For example, Redwire is currently in the process of bioprinting a human knee meniscus on the ISS and has previously bioprinted human heart tissue. Microgravity provides a unique environment for novel materials and therapeutics and even entertainment and branding opportunities.”
