Go where no one has gone before—without leaving your computer. NASA has made more than 25,000 images of Mars available online at http://mars. jpl.nasa.gov/mgs/index.html. The images are from the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) made during its mapping orbit, from March 1999 through August 1999. The Surveyor has made more than 5,000 orbits of the planet. The images include all of one Mars year, beginning in May 1997 and ending in September 1999, 687 Earth days.
As of May 2000, all MOC data acquired have been validated by the MGS MOC Operations Team at Malin Space Science Systems and deposited for permanent archive with the NASA Planetary Data System (PDS).
Also on the site are weekly reports of the project, live images of the command center, and VRML models of the spacecraft.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
