A microgravity manufacturing environment for optical fibers is believed to eliminate the defects in the manufacturing process that occur on Earth, leading to higher-quality fibers than can be produced on the ground. In April 2019, a fully functional engineering prototype designed and built by Mercury was launched into orbit for NASA.
