Manufacturing an explosive material such as rocket fuel can be dangerous business. To lower the risk, engineers are taking a cue from nature with the design of their latest mixing method.
Researchers at NASA, in partnership with Keystone Synergistic, are working on a trio of new additive and milling technologies in order to construct a 3D-printed rocket nozzle that has a simpler design and can still withstand extreme temperatures and
Snow on the runway can cause chaos and long, expensive, flight delays. But that could be a thing of the past after autonomous snowplows were tested for the first time.
Plastic trash is becoming a big problem on land and sea and a company has found a new use for the plastic waste it’s been scooping up in the canals of Amsterdam—office furniture.
Over the years, scientists have created soft robots that can handle delicate objects, crawl and swim, however these robots have always had a limited ability to react to the environment around them. Until now.
In an effort to help solve the over-use of ecological resources, the ecomotive team at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands have built Noah, the world’s first circular car—referring to the vehicle’s sustainable production, usage
