A cosmonaut has bioengineered human cartilage tissue at the International Space Station (ISS) for the first time, according to a new study. Researchers think their findings have the possibility to improve deep space travel in the future. In December 2018, Russian cosmonaut Oleg Kononenko used a new custom-designed machine (called the “Bioprinter Organ.Aut”) that utilized a magnetic field to assemble cartilage cells in space.
