Looks like the ESA is at the forefront of that development already though: http://www.esa.int/Highlights/Lunar_3D_printing It would be i...

Unity Lunar Simulator revived

Between the Cubesat and school, I've been hitting the idea back and forth to start on the old lunar sim again.

Waiting with bated breath

I don't think I can give an exact launch date, but it is scheduled to go up with about 5-8 other cube sats after approval. Tight lipped as I've been "encour...

Affordable sub orbital vehicles
