nanotubes3d printing using simulated lunar and martian regolith combined with common biologically derived polymer

Additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D-printing (3DP) approaches have recently been considered as promising means to enable prolonged off-world activities through utilization of native planetary regoliths for manufacturing. Researchers have a comprehensive approach for creating robust, elastic, designer Lunar and Martian …

brainNew brain implant design is meant to restore vision to the blind

Experiments that let a paralyzed person swig coffee using a robotic arm, or that let blind people “see” spots of light, have proven the huge potential of computers that interface with the brain. But the implanted electrodes used in such …
