NASA 3D-prints first working rocket part composed of two metals (Additive Manufacturing - 2017-09 - ExtremeTech)

Using an advanced laser printing method, NASA agency has produced a bi-metallic rocket igniter that works. A unique hybrid 3D printer builds the part out of copper alloy and Inconel (a nickel-chromium alloy) using automated blown powder laser deposition.

Using aditative manufacturing to print sturdy, reliable structures of unlimited size in space (Additive Manufacturing - 2017-08 - Technology.org)

Archinaut, a NASA Technology Demonstration Mission project developing cutting-edge technology to build and assemble complex hardware and supersized structures on demand in space, achieved an unprecedented milestone this summer. They successfully printed large beam segments — similar to those used to construct a variety of space structures — and subjected both printing equipment and printed hardware deep space pressures, temperatures, and other rigors.

NASA designing autonomous drones for Mars exploration (Drone/Mars - 2017-04 - ZDNet)

The next Mars rover in 2020 could be equipped with a UAV to get a bird’s eye view of the planet. Engineers at NASA’s Langley research center are developing a concept for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs, a.k.a. drones) for Mars. The project, called Mars Electric Reusable Flyer, takes advantage of the technology that underpins the newest autonomous robots and self-driving vehicles. With 100 times less atmosphere, liftoff will be especially difficult.

Astronauts to 3D-print medical supplies in space, thanks to Toronto doctor (Additive Manufacturing/Surgical Tools - 2017-01 - CTVNews)

If astronauts aboard the International Space Station need a medical tool, such as a surgical instrument or a finger splint, they used to wait for a resupply mission. Now, they will use a 3D printer aboard the ISS. This ground-breaking concept was devised by Toronto doctor Julielynn Wong. In 2011, Wong founded the company 3D4MD, which uses 3D-printing and low-cost technologies to supply remote locations, including space, with healthcare supplies.
