The Jerusalem Post reports: In space, nobody can hear you scream, but in 2016 they will be able to see you laugh.

Israeli concept artist Eyal Gever is working with NASA on a project called #Laugh, which will be the first art piece created in space.

The project will take a digital representation of human laughter and beam it up to space, where it will be created on a specially designed 3D printer that works in zero gravity, made by US-based firm Made in Space. The company was created in 2010 “with the idea that people should be living in space now,” according to its CTO Jason Dunn.

The project, Gever said at the IMTM tourist conference on Wednesday, is part of a wider effort by NASA to use 3D printing to help create a more self-sustaining environment for astronauts in space.
