High-strength Ceramic 3D printing breakthrough could have significant benefits for aviation

High-strength Ceramic 3D printing breakthrough could have significant benefits for aviation

A US laboratory has begun printing high-temperature, high-strength 3D ceramic parts, and the development is likely to have noteworthy benefits for aviation. Californian company HRL Laboratories has used a 3D printed resin in the required size and shape, and fired it to convert it into a ceramic that can endure temperatures up to 1,700 degrees Celsius, without any loss of crucial strength.

US’ Princeton University researchers capture first 3D recordings of neural activity in nematode Caenorhabditis elegans

US’ Princeton University researchers capture first 3D recordings of neural activity in nematode Caenorhabditis elegans

A latest method has been developed to record 3D footage of neural activity in nearly the entire brain of a free-moving animal. The development has come up as an advance that may be helpful in better understanding how neurons manage action and perception in animals.

Rare Chance to Watch Aurora Borealis on New Year’s Eve: NOAA

Not All of You will see Aurora Borealis on New Year’s Eve, NOAA predicts

Earlier, astronomers predicted that earthlings are going to witness a stunning cosmic light show, commonly known as aurora, on New Year’s Eve as a massive solar eruption was hurtling towards our home planet. If you are eagerly waiting for the rare solar flare, here’s a party pooper: not every space enthusiast will be able to see the aurora borealis.

NASA has to Build Prototype Deep Space Habitation Module by 2018, says Congress

NASA has to Build Prototype Deep Space Habitation Module by 2018, says Congress

About 15 years from today, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) may launch its Orion spacecraft on a voyage to Mars, the first such manned mission to deep space. The space agency has revealed many things about the space journey, but didn’t tell anything about a habitable module. Now, Congress has asked NASA to build a prototype deep space habitation module by 2018.
