Oxford Performance Materials 3D Prints 600 Parts for Boeing’s Starliner Space Taxis

The concept of a space taxi is just something I find delightful, and the fact that it’s in the process of becoming a real thing rather than a fun idea from a Douglas Adams novel makes me incredibly happy. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to hitch a ride on a space taxi, given […]

NASA’s ICESat-2 To Feature 3D Printed Bracket Supporting ATLAS for Measuring Ice Sheets

It’s not unlikely in most cases today that when we hear the words firsts and technology—3D printing is usually right around the corner, if not front and center, in the innovative mix. And what a ‘mix’ that is—reaching around the globe to affect nearly every sector of manufacturing and product development. But when NASA is […]
