    Researchers 3D print tools with Martian dust

    It's been a couple of years since NASA outlined its Journey to Mars program that, with many milestones along the way, ultimately envisions humans landing on Mars in the 2030s. Tackling that huge feat will require scientists to come up with solutions to far more problems than landing on the moon ever required.

    A 3D-printed key that can’t be copied

    KEYS have been around for a long time. The earliest, made from wood, date back 4,000 years, to the ancient Egyptians. The Romans improved them a bit by making them from metal. But there, more or less, they have stayed. Electronic card-keys aside, a key is still, basically, a piece of metal sporting a series of grooves, teeth and indentations which, when inserted into a keyway, line up to move pins and levers to lock or unlock a mechanism.

    Airbus successfully tests metal 3D printed controlling component of an A380

    The aerospace branch of the Liebherr industrial and mechanical engineering company, headquartered in Switzerland, has 3D printed a controlling part of an A380 aircraft. The hydraulic valve was developed in close collaboration with French aerospace manufacturer Airbus, and the Chemnitz University of Technology in Germany. The additive manufactured aerospace component has now been successfully trialled in a test flight of the double-decker A380 air
