On May 5, China's new large carrier rocket Long March-5B made its maiden flight,sending the trial version of China's new-generation manned spaceship and a cargo return capsule for test in space.

Space 3D printing was conducted successfully today on the experimental spacecraft. It is our country’s first completed space 3D printing.

The research of space 3D printing technology is of great significance to the long-term operations of the space station in orbit and the development of orbit manufacturing in ultra-large space structures.
