Martian soil could serve as a 3D-printing material, researchers have shown, meaning it could be used to manufacture items on the Red Planet.
In a series of tests, Amit Bandyopadhyay, a professor at the Washington State University School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, and his team used simulated crushed Martian regolith to demonstrate its capabilities as a 3D-printing material.
The results may be crucial for future crewed missions to Mars.
This reminded me of a 2 page comic I did a while back, which shows 3d printing buildings in passing
I heard it was Trumpos birthday ( a couple months ago), and that he was turning 72. I thought: “Well dinosaurs are still ruling the earth, aren’t they?” That started the seed of the idea… Well a couple months later here’s the finished product.
Did this back in February, but it’s been packed away, since then. A Raven totem on a dead, but standing tree, basically it was symbolizing my (still) holey spine, and ribs, with the Raven as a symbol of luck and revival.
