The Man Who Sold the Moon

A scrappy group of makerspace hardware hackers and Burning Man devotees build an autonomous 3D printing robot that creates ceramic building panels from desert sand. The next step: send these gadgets to the Moon to print building materials for future generations of spacefarers. Along the way, the crew overcomes the challenges of crowdfunding a Moon mission, battling cancer and perfecting an open-source engineering marvel.
