Museum Creates 3D-Printed Replica Of World's Largest Dinosaur-1

Museum creates life-size 3D-printed replica of the world’s largest dinosaur

Wandering about in search of his lost sheep, one morning in the spring of 2014, an unassuming Argentinian farmer stumbled across something that has since been hailed as the greatest discovery in the last century. Located in the Patagonian desert was an oddly-shaped ledge, which later turned out to be the 8 foot-long thigh bone…





Foster + Partners Proposes Regolith-Based Martian Habitat-4

Foster + Partners proposes regolith-based Martian habitat, built by an army of robots

Architects, across the world, are coming up with incredibly-inventive Martian home designs, in response to NASA’s recently-held 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge. A few days back, we talked about the Sfero House concept, by French firm Fabulous, which proposes the use of robots to extract the Red Planet’s natural resources, in order to construct houses for humans.…



French company, Fabulous, envisions Martian habitats as 3D-printed Sfero domes

Few days back, we talked about an ongoing simulated Mars mission, in which a group of six volunteers will be spending the next twelve months in complete isolation, inside a dome habitat on the slopes of Hawaii’s Mauna Loa volcano. As part of another NASA-funded experiment, inviting new and innovative designs for 3D-printed Martian habitats,…


NASA tests one of the most complex, 3D-printed rocket turbopumps ever made

In the recent times, NASA has certainly dabbled with varied contrivances and notions, ranging from the credible modular robotic vehicles to the fantastical Venus-exploring blimps. But this time around, the focus was on practicality - with the design in question entailing a 3D-printed rocket engine turbopump. This rocket turbopump was designed by the engineers at…
