  • NASA’s JPL Develops Multi-Metal 3D Printing Process
    By on July 31, 2014 | Comments Off  Comments


    yyzmcleod (1534129) writes The technology to 3D print a single part from multiple materials has been around for years, but only for polymer-based additive manufacturing processes. For metals, jobs are typically confined to a single powdered base metal or alloy per object. However, researchers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory say they have developed a 3D printing technique that allows for print jobs to transition from one metal to another in a single (more…)

  • More Quantum Strangeness: Particles Separated From Their Properties
    By on July 30, 2014 | Comments Off  Comments

    Dupple sends word of new quantum mechanical research in which a neutron is sent along a different path from one of its characteristics. First, a neutron beam is split into two parts in a neutron interferometer. Then the spins of the two beams are shifted into different directions: The upper neutron beam has a spin parallel to the neutrons’ trajectory, the spin of the lower beam points into the opposite direction. After the two beams have been (more…)

  • Apollo 11 Moon Landing Turns 45
    By on July 20, 2014 | Comments Off  Comments

    An anonymous reader writes On July 20, 1969, U.S. astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the moon. Neil Armstrong would say later he thought the crew had a 90% chance of getting home from the moon, and only a 50% chance of landing safely. The scope of NASA’s Apollo program seems staggering today. President Kennedy announced his moon goal just four years into the Space Age, but the United States had not even launched (more…)
