New low-cost technology available for the creation and replication of small plastic objects is introduced. Three dimensional printing is taking on a new meaning and lies in its ability to popularize and democratize science whether in remote areas of the world or in outer space. Museums can already distribute exact copies of rare or delicate fossils as widely as they need. And students can print out molecules to figure out their complex structures. The ongoing experiences of the ICTP Science Dissemination Unit are presented and discussed.
