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.

New Technique to measure Gravity on Distant Stars Can Help Find Habitable Exoplanets

New Technique to measure Gravity on Distant Stars Can Help Find Habitable Exoplanets

A new technique termed as autocorrelation function timescale technique can calculate gravity on surface of distant stars with an accuracy of four percent. Scientists from University of British Columbia, University of Vienna, Australia, France and Germany have worked on a collaborative project to develop a new method of calculating gravitational pull for distant stars.
