Bringing 3D-printing to the moon

Bringing 3D-printing to the moon

International space agencies and companies are not only planning to further explore, but to colonize space. The moon is of great importance as a research station and starting point for further expeditions. However, the cost of flights and transports to the moon are enormous - a kilogram of loading capacity costs approximately 700,000 Euros. Therefore, infrastructure, components and devices, etc., would at best be manufactured directly on the Earth's satellite.

3D printed metamaterials improve sound quality

Academics have created devices capable of manipulating sound in the same way as light - creating exciting new opportunities in entertainment and public communication. The technology takes everyday materials like glass, wood and 3D printer plastic and engineers them to control, direct, and manipulate waves in uncommon ways, transforming metasurfaces into behaving like converging lenses for sound.
