3D-printed titanium lattice is 50% stronger than WE54 aerospace alloy

A new type of 3D-printed lattice structure has surprised researchers with its strength and light weight. It uses two different lattice structures merged together to eliminate the weak points normally found in these complex shapes.RMIT researchers in Melbourne, Australia, took hollow-strut lattice designs as a starting point, inspired by hollow-stemmed water lilies and organ pipe coral, and then looked at ways to reduce the high stress concentrations created at the join points.“Ideally, the stress in all complex cellular…

Astronomers find what may be the universe’s brightest object with a black hole devouring a sun a day – The Denver Post

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Astronomers have discovered what may be the brightest object in the universe, a quasar with a black hole at its heart growing so fast that it swallows the equivalent of a sun a day. The record-breaking quasar shines 500 trillion times brighter than our sun. The black hole powering this distant quasar is more than 17 billion times more immense than our sun, an Australian-led team reported Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy. While the quasar resembles a mere dot in images, scientists envision a…

U.S. company’s lunar lander will burn up after failed moon shot

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — A U.S. company’s lunar lander will soon burn up in Earth’s atmosphere after a failed moon shot.Astrobotic Technology said its lander is now headed back toward Earth from the vicinity of the moon. Company officials expect the mission to end Thursday. Astrobotic is working with NASA to track the lander’s path and said it should pose no safety risk during its fiery reentry.The lander, named Peregrine, rocketed from Cape Canaveral last Monday. It quickly developed a fuel leak that forced Astrobotic…
