According to William Jones of the NASA Glenn Research Center (William.R.Jones@lerc.nasa.gov ),
"As far as I know, there has never been a lubricant manufactured in space. I'm not sure why you would want to do that. The deposition of some sputtered or evaporated films under microgravity conditions might yield a more desired structure from a friction and wear standpoint. We do plan to start a program on an in situ, on demand lubrication system for space involving evaporated metal films. Our tests will be under gravity conditions, but eventually, we will want to test the concept in space."
