Design Something Useful for Astronauts to Use in Space. You design it. We’ll 3D print it in space. Mouser is looking for an innovative design idea from college engineering students that will be used by astronauts at the International Space Station. A useful device. A handy tool. It’s up to your imagination. Grant Imahara and former ISS Commander and astronaut, Chris Hadfield, are judges to determine which design makes it to space. From now until Oct. 7, 2016, keep dreaming of the stars and coming up with inventive ways to get there.
