Jason Dunn is the cofounder and CTO of Made in Space. Made In Space is the only company to off-world manufacture, having built the first objects ever made in space in 2014. With two operational 3D printers on the International Space Station, Made In Space provides commercial space manufacturing services to NASA, government agencies, and commercial users. Jason founded Made In Space in 2010 as a result of analyzing the best possible approaches to enabling a fully sustainable form of space colonization. With a core focus on space manufacturing, the company has since built, flown, and operated the first and second 3D printers in space. Installed on the International Space Station, the first Made In Space Zero Gravity 3D printer began space manufacturing in November 2014. Today Made In Space operates the second-generation 3D printer on the ISS, called the Additive Manufacturing Facility, enabling groups across the planet to have hardware manufactured in space.
Jason holds two degrees in Aerospace engineering from the University of Central Florida, has studied at the Singularity University Graduate Summer Program, and is an internationally recognized speaker on the topics of space exploration, advanced manufacturing, and the theory of disruption. In 2014, Jason and his three co-founders were recognized by Forbes on the prestigious 30 under 30 list for manufacturing.
