— -- It turns out even rocket scientists need help from students sometimes.

NASA is asking students ages 5 to 19 to submit a 3-D design for a container that could be used on a future mission. As NASA pursues deep space missions, the goal is for the design to be something astronauts can create using a 3-D printer in space.
