Nasa’s ‘Microgravity Investigation of Cement Solidification (MICS) Project’ is exploring the results of mixing concrete in space. Concrete could be a very useful tool in building habitats and structures to protect against meteorites and cosmic radiation. But until now, we have not had useful data on the strength of the material when mixed in micro-gravity.
For the first time, researches have captured the atomic-level layer by layer growth on the ordered structure of a nanocrystal. This will help material scientists understand the forming of various crystalline structures used in manufacturing of many products.

Canon has been long working on a video camera that records at 60x full HD video. The sensor is slightly bigger than the APS-C, found in most DSLRs, but smaller than full-frame. This means fitting it in a consumer product, is a matter of when, not if. However processing these images in-camera will be no small feat, […]
With little post-processing required, Evolve part finish will rival injection molding at lower costs than current additive processes. This will be ideal for runs of 5,00 to 20,000. Unlike most current processes, the materials available will be standard injection materials, not requiring compromise to meet process. Evolve are nearing commercial production.
