NASA Emails Wrench to Astronaut

NASA Emails Wrench to Astronaut: " Butch Wilmore had a common problem—he couldn't find a socket wrench—with an uncommon twist: He's an astronaut on the International Space Station about 270 miles above the nearest hardware store. Solution? NASA emailed him one, in a manner of speaking. As the Guardian reports, NASA's mission control on Earth emailed a design to the space station's relatively new 3D printer, which then spit out a plastic wrench in about four hours."
