NASA (also known as the overachiever of the science world), has developed a system of 3D printed chainmail for spacecraft and astronauts. Yes, I said chainmail. Chainmail in space. Unlike the mail of […] The post NASA Reinvents Chain Mail, Makes it Even More Badass appeared first on Geek.com.
Good morning, Cassini! Today, at about 3:00am EDT, NASA’s Deep Space Network Goldstone Complex in California’s acquired the orbiter’s signal for the first time since it began its series of Grand Finale dives. The photos it took from the space between Saturn and its rings, which have just been released, are nothing… Read more...
A group of researchers from the University of Arizona, in collaboration with NASA scientists, have created an innovative inflatable greenhouse to help feed astronauts on other planets. The Prototype Lunar/Mars Greenhouse project would allow astronauts on deep space missions access to healthy, fresh food year-round.[...]
