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.
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.
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
