Scientists create Terminator 2-inspired 3D printer

Terminator 2 3D printerScientists have created a Terminator 2-inspired 3D printer that lifts objects fully-formed from a pool of goo in a matter of minutes.

The technique, which could transform 3D printing, works up to 100 times faster than current methods and produces objects that are considerably stronger. And if the machine looks like the product of a science fiction author’s imagination, it may be because its inventors were inspired by the killer robot, T-1000, that rises menacingly from a puddle of molten metal in the film.

Obama in ClevelandPresident Barack Obama said Wednesday that he regrets not shutting down the U.S. Navy's prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba when he first arrived at the White House six years ago.

Obama orders 40 percent cut in government's greenhouse gases

greenhouse gasesPresident Barack Obama will order the federal government on Thursday to cut its emissions of greenhouse gases by 40 percent, as the U.S. seeks to spur other nations to get serious about climate change.

Obama's executive order will also direct the government to ramp up use of renewable energy sources to 30 percent of the federal government's consumption. The White House said U.S. taxpayers could save up to $18 billion in electricity costs by reducing greenhouse gases 40 percent over the next decade, compared to 2008 levels.


Warm weather puts Alaska on thin ice

War weather in AlaskaA few weeks ago, as champion musher Martin Buser prepped for the 1,000-mile Iditarod Sled Dog Race across Alaska, ugly images from last year’s trail kept flashing in his head. In the old days, a bad trail meant lots of drifting snow. But last year was just the opposite: miles of open, snowless ground, fraught with hazards. It was the worst he has seen in decades of running dogs.

“Glare ice, stumps, roots, rocks and tussocks,” Buser said. “There was so much carnage out there, musher- and sledwise.”


Much Rests On The Enhanced Large Hadron Collider

hadron colliderGet ready to look at the universe through a new window.

Later this month, the Large Hadron Collider, or LHC, the behemoth particle accelerator operated by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), will be back in action after a two-year hiatus.

The pause was intentional, giving technicians and engineers time to ramp up the collision energy by almost a factor of two. In particle collisions, the higher the energy, the bigger the payoff, as the energy of the colliding particles gets translated into the masses of the debris, following the E=mc2 prescription.
