NASA Announces Winners of First Part of Phase Two in 3D Printed Habitat Challenge

Two years ago, NASA issued a challenge: 3D print viable habitats that people can potentially live in on Mars, the moon, or elsewhere in the future, using locally available materials. 3D Design 3D Printing 3D Printed Habitat Challenge Bradley University branch technology Foster + Partners nasa NASA 3D Printed Habitat Challenge University of Alaska University of Alaska Fairbanks

Test tube transport: the Hyperloop nears reality

3D Perspectives

The tubes would probably be constructed from steel—although other materials, including fiberglass, are being considered—and covered with solar panels to supply the system’s energy. Written by Catherine Bolgar, in association with WSJ custom studios.

Upcoming CATI Training Classes for August 2016 – Featuring SOLIDWORKS Drawings

CATI Tech Notes

A lot of material is covered in a short time, but our instructors are there to make sure that no one is left behind. In order to obtain the full potential of the powerful tools provided by Computer Aided Technology (CATI), over 70 training classes are offered in August 2016.

7 Reasons Why Nuclear Waste Is Dangerous

During this period, the material stored inside poses a direct threat to all living creatures, and can contaminate the environment with radioactivity if the seal is broken by unexpected events such as earthquakes or human errors. Ever since we have discovered how to harness.

GE-Come Dust, Ice, Hail Stone and High-G Force: What it Takes for the LEAP Jet Engine to Prove its Mettle

Additive Manufacturing

Dirt and dust is sometimes more difficult then other test as our new engines are very efficient at slinging material away from the core,” says Brian DeBruin, who run GE’s test operations site in Peebles, Ohio. By Tomas Kellner, June 14, 2015.

NASA awards $100K to winners of Compression Test Competition of 3D Printed Habitat Challenge


The challenge, which saw participating teams 3D print samples of the space habitat materials they are developing, recently wrapped up. The two top-scoring teams were Foster + Partners | Branch Technology, which was awarded $85,930, and the University of Alaska in Fairbanks, which received $14,070 (for a total of $100,000). NASA has named the top-scoring teams for the current phase of its 3D Printed Habitat Challenge, Phase 2: Level 1 Compression Test Competition.
