3D Printing Our Future in Space and on Earth

3D Printing Our Future in Space and on Earth

No matter what you take with you when going up into space, it’s going to be complicated and expensive. Very expensive. If we talk about longer missions, we better come up with something sustainable.

Tommaso Ghidini, Head of the Materials Technology Section at the European Space Agency, might have an answer.

Tommaso and his team have already come quite close to realising this goal with some mind blowing 3D printing results. What’s even more interesting is that this technology is not only made for space, but can also be used in other environments.

Hawking Solved How Information Could Escape Black Holes

Hawking Solved How Information Could Escape Black Holes

Stephen Hawking announced during at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, in Sweden, that he has solved how you could escape a black hole.

The presentation was made at the Hawking Radiation conference, which was co-hosted by the theoretical physics institute, Nordita, and the University of North Carolina, on the campus of KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

Hawking, said”

“I propose that the information is stored not in the interior of the black hole as one might expect, but on its boundary, the event horizon. The message of this lecture is that black holes ain’t as black as they are painted. They are not the eternal prisons they were once thought. Things can get out of a black hole both on the outside and possibly come out in another universe.”

What Makes Us Happy?

We all want to be happy. But how, exactly, do you go about it? More stuff or less? More choice or less? The answers — from psychologists, journalists, Buddhist monks — may surprise you.

The Ocean Cleanup Project

The Ocean Cleanup Project

The Ocean Cleanup project, a 100-kilometre array of floating barriers, aims to clear the oceans of waste plastic.

The Ocean Cleanup designed by Dutch 20-year-old engineering student Boyan Slat, is one of the projects shortlisted for this year’s Designs of the Year award, will collect 70 million kilo of plastic from the sea in 10 years.

The project aims to clear floating islands made of millions of pieces of waste, in areas where currents converge.
