I actually work for GE (General Electric) and we have had that technology at our facility for over 4yrs (additive manufacturing)... its amazing!!
To see lasers turn fine metal powder into a solid object is quite mind blowing.. although it takes about 3 days to manufacture a part the size of a computer mouse. It's detail and intricacy is incomparable to anything in previous methods of metal fabrication.
kinda makes you wonder did humans really invent such a technology?? or were we taught by "something" far more advanced??

Mushroom and other fungus grow rather well in the dark, they eat crap, don't take up much space yet are rather nutritious. Don't know how well they would grow in zero g all the same but they seem like a source of food that could grow well in low earth orbit or even beyond. 😂
