MakerBot Sends Bust of Stephen Colbert’s Head Into Space
A 3D printed bust of Stephen Colbert has been sent into space in the first mission of the MakerBot Space Program. A weather balloon was used to carry Colbert aloft. The Colbert bust is based on one presented to Colbert by MakerBot founder Bre Pettis, during the June 8th taping of the Colbert Report. MakerBot subsequently scanned and 3D printed the likenesses of other New York celebrities for the MakerBot New York Notables party.
