What is the biggest bottleneck involved in long term space travel?
You would say that the journeys consume too much of time.
But suppose we solve that problem like Nolan did in Interstellar, what else would pose to be a big problem?
Any kind of machinery failure during space travel could prove to be fatal to the mission.
What if we could find out a way to generate duplicate equipment in our hypothetical space ship? Wouldn’t that be great?
Well the point stated is not as futuristic as it sounds. NASA already has installed a 3D printer at the International Space Station which is capable of printing out replacement parts for itself in case of any damage. And may be in near future we will have a modified version that will be able to print out whole printers!
3D printing technology has caught the fancy of people as soon as it hit the market. People are printing out their own dresses, shoes and even furniture!
Printing Services Singapore offers a wide range of services that can take care of your 3D printing needs. If everyday people can use 3D printing techniques with such ease, it should be fairly easy for the space researchers to scale it up to the level of space equipment.
NASA astronaut Barry Wilmore became the first person to operate the 3D printer after its installation this November. He used it to print a protective plate to use as its own casing.
The printer used low heat to melt plastic and then extruded one layer on top of the other to gradually construct a structure as per the design fed to it by software programs. When Wilmore inspected the first plastic casing produced by the printer he found that it was partially stuck to the tray. This happened probably due to the change in bonding of plastic under microgravity conditions.
Scientists have modified their program taking into account microgravity in space and have sent a new design to the printer. The tray has been replaced and every one is waiting for the new version. Next year all the samples would be sent back to earth for detailed analysis and comparison with similar products manufactured on earth.
NASA and Made in Space, Inc are the two institutions controlling this project and they are continuously monitoring the data sent back from the International Space Station to track the printing process. The project is controlled primarily from earth so that the astronauts can devote their time to space research that require mandatory presence in space.
The CEO of Made in Space, Aaron Kemmer feels that the technology is still in its nascent stage but it has huge potential to transform into the next big thing in Space Research. If the project can develop as per plan we are looking at building a convenience store at the International Space Station that will hugely reduce its dependency on Earth.
Taking cue from NASA, European Space Agency is also developing similar projects using 3D technology in collaboration with Foster and Partners. They are exploring the options of creating complex structures on the moon using 3D printing technology with lunar soil.

There are many different items that are enticing and can draw you into buying, but not all of them will be famous in name. Even though this is true, there are some pieces you just know are going to cause interest. Let’s take a look at five design icons that wow their viewers.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s pavilion for the 1929 World Exposition in Barcelona is a beauty when it comes to modern architecture. The Barcelona daybed is particularly alluring. The lines are minimalistic and go right along with Mies’s simplistic looks.
The 67 lounge chair by Charles Eames is very popular in the Berlin and Copenhagen area. These chairs along with their matching ottoman are like a high end status symbol. It is a definite icon of style, but it can also be found in the MoMA in New York. It is very comfortable.
The eye wall clock from George Nelson is a real looker. Out of his more than one hundred and fifty clocks George Nelson and team members designed it is very memorable. It can be hung either vertically or horizontally. It’s very playful and a good way to decorate. Depending on your taste and if you like to mix and match, you could really put it in any room to add a spark of fun.
Above is the real BOeing 707. The model of the Boeing 707 is an iconic piece to have around. The Blue and White planes remained in use until 1984 after being put into use in the 1950s.
These are all great ideas to have around your house, decorating and creating conversations. Whatever your taste might be, one of the aforementioned items can certainly turn your head. There are plenty of other pieces that were created by these designers if you need more ideas, but these are some of the most popular.

The father of economics, Adam Smith once said, “All money is a matter of belief”, and never a truer statement has been spoken. Living in such a credit accelerated society, it’s often times shocking to see people actually pulling wads of cash out of their pocket. In times of economic turmoil, there has been a trend of putting purchases on credit. Many major credit card companies like Visa, American Express, and MasterCard offer a variety of perks when you sign up with one of their cards. You can have no interest on purchases for the first year, you can also gather award points on all purchases you make, and some cards even offer cash back incentives.
But this slippery slope of an extended credit line can be a hard lesson for many young people who are not properly educated on penalties, late fees, and high interest rates. With plastic in hand, there is less guilt about making superfluous purchases. According to Money and Life Coach expert, Chinkee Tan, he says, “The problem is credit cards make people buy things they can’t really afford. You really have to be careful.” Tan has been a revolutionary figure to fellow Filipinos, who are using his advice to invest their money wisely, as well as budgeting properly.
The Philippines is a sovereign island country located in Southeast Asia, and is made up of about 7,107 islands. The Philippines may have a gross domestic product of around $272 billion, it is still technically considered a third world country. In 2012, the public debt percentage was estimated to be around 40.2%; that’s slightly better than the numbers compared to previous years, (2004 saw 74.2%). The Philippines is a great example of how debt can accumulate until it is beyond the point of repayment, seemingly. Back in early 70’s, ruler Ferdinand Marcos borrowed a large amount of money for government expansion; unbeknownst to him, this would lead to subsequent administrations accruing more debt due to interest from borrowed loans. In 2003, due to extremely high external debt of $57.6 billion (US) dollars, the Philippines found themselves in a fiscal crisis. This type of external debt is considered, by most economists, to be harmful to the economy. Because the external debt is so high, every administration has to focus on new ways to pay back part of this debt, meaning it will take money away from other parts of the country that need work, like schools, hospitals, or roads.
The Philippines are at a difficult juncture currently, as their debt continues to remain high, it may dissuade investors from wanting to invest further; this would cause the Peso to decline, making it harder to pay back debt because their dollar would be worth even less. Financial planner and banker Randell Tiongson said that the average Filipino customer must have either a debit or credit card now. This is not unlike many other countries who rely on plastic in order to book plane tickets, hotel rooms, or purchase items with online shopping codes. Find me one website that allows you to send a check, or try to book a hotel room without a credit card, it’s an impossibility. In this day and age, yes, it is probably safer and more convenient to have a credit or debit card. With the amazing advancements of phone applications, it’s a breeze to transfer money from one account to another, or even snap a picture of your paycheck and have those funds electronically transferred into your bank account. Yeah, I can’t say I hate the idea of online banking conveniences; it makes everything so easily accessible. In most cases, credit cards are more flexible than cash. You can even make money when you buy gas, groceries, or pay utility bills with certain credit cards. Though those incentives may be somewhat misleading, it’s enough to hook line and sinker the customer.
The use of credit cards have been so ubiquitous, it’s actually starting to hurt credit scores. If you walk into a Forever 21, or a Kohl’s, you almost always have the option to apply for a credit card, and if you’re credit isn’t awful, then you’ll most likely be approved for this card and see that after the first six months to a year, you’ll have an interest rate of about 25%. But with such attractive incentives offered, most people will say, “I get 20% off this buy if I apply right now!” they end up applying for the card. A little known fact, however, still remains; stockpiling up on these credit cards from TJ Maxx, Kohls, JCPenny, BJ’s, Sams Club, etc actually hurts your credit score. It’s not necessarily the more the merrier when it comes to credit cards. Why, do you ask, would this hurt your credit score? See, every time you want to take advantage of a store’s credit card, they have to request a credit score, and this ends up hurting your credit score. Yes! We have another conundrum. Checking your credit score more than a few times per year, actually hurts it. Some things in life just don’t make sense; let’s just leave it at that.

Our Smartphones are with us all of the time, and that isn’t going to change anytime soon. Because we always have our smartphone with us, we want it to reflect our personality. We want to it make us happy when we look at it. There are plenty of things we can do to accessorize it and make it more to our liking.
The Aura phone strap is pretty cool. It is like a mood ring, but its a strap instead. I remember when I was little, I would put the mood ring on and try to trick it. Sometimes it worked, but it was fun either way.
Getting a custom ringtone is a lot of fun. Mobile 17 is an app that will allow you to take music phone your phone or cloud and make your ring town. It also does this with email and text alerts if you want to customize them as well.
You may have seen smart watches and arm bands. These are especially popular with the fitness enthusiast. These smart watches and arm bands will allow you to check your sleeping schedule, heart rate and many other things. You can attach your smartphone to the armband if you want to track certain things and since they are linked via Bluetooth, it makes things very easy.
If you have not already got in a good low price phone case, it is time that you do that. If you drop your phone, you’re going to have quite a time when it breaks, and you are stuck buying a new one. If you have a warranty, it’s not so bad as having to foot the whole bill, but even then it can be annoying. You might as well get a case and not have to worry about breaking it. There are plenty of different styles and colors to choose from.
