3D Printing is Launching Rockets to the Future

Mar 18, 2021

12:30pm – 1:00pm CT

Society sees space as futuristic. However, aerospace manufacturing hasn’t evolved in 60 years - large factories, fixed tooling, complex supply chains, and extensive manual labor continues to hold the industry back. However, over the past five years, Relativity Space has built an unrivaled team revolutionizing how rockets are built and flown by fusing 3D printing, artificial intelligence, and autonomous robotics.

Join Tim Ellis, co-founder and CEO of Relativity, and Athena Brensberger, space evangelist and influencer @Astroathens, for a featured session at SXSW. The two will discuss the origin story of Relativity, how and why the Relativity team continues to build towards the uncharted future, and the company’s role in expanding the possibilities for humanity's multiplanetary future.
