If you have access to a 3D printer, you can now output your own space-exploring fleet thanks to NASA. The space agency has posted a library of files for printing a number of space probes, asteroids and Mars' Gale Crater. For the curious, Mars Odyssey, Kepler, Voyager and Cassini are all amongst the 21 available options. The entire lot has been scaled down to figurine size to accommodate the abilities of a number of printers, but the minute details aren't likely translate entirely. The repository also includes other 3D models, textures and visualizations for further three-dimensional experimentation. Those looking to get started need only consult the source link down below. As for me, I'm consulting these folks at MIT about an ice cream satellite.
