I recently came across this mini documentary of Bagaveev Corporation, who are developing and building 3D printed components for a dedicated nanosatellite launcher. The company has the prestige of being the first in the world to fly a rocket with a 3D printed rocket engine, as reported here.

“3D printing rocket? Is he crazy?” This is how people think about Nadir Bagaveyev, the CEO of Bagaveyev Rocket Company, who use the technology of 3D printing to build the engines and components. “I just like to look up,” he said, “I have a powerful dream, and I have been following it for a long time.” A story of a young man who has been following his dream, and trying all he can to inspire the whole world. “Let’s aim for space, moon, and stars, instead of sitting here like frogs in a little pond.”
