Just disgusting that the shutdown and paralysis in American Government is delaying the payments to the families of fallen American Soldiers. The payment, known as the “Death Gratuity”, is sent to families of the fallen within three days to help them cover funeral costs or travel to meet the flag-draped coffins of their loved ones.
Politicians on the both sides, please come together and resolve the national issues.
A new shape-changing metal crystal is reported in the journal Nature, by scientists at University of Minnesota.
It is the prototype of a new family of smart materials that could be used in applications ranging from space vehicles to electronics to jet engines. The crystal has two different arrangements of atoms, switching seamlessly between them.
Martensite can change shape tens of thousands of times when heated and cooled without degrading. (Source: BBC News, October 4, 2013)
UNITED NATIONS: Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak pleaded Saturday for Muslims to unite against extremism, warning that sectarian violence risked tearing the Islamic world apart.
“I believe the greatest threat to Muslims today comes not from the outside world, but from within,” he told the UN General Assembly. Najib voiced outrage at violence between the Sunni and Shia sects in Syria, Iraq and Pakistan, noting that nearly 5,000 Muslims died in conflict in the three countries in the holy month of Ramazan. “It is time to end the killing and concentrate instead on building a common agenda for peace and prosperity,” he added.
US space agency NASA is planning to launch a 3D printer into space next year to help astronauts manufacture spare parts and tools in zero gravity.
Also known as “Additive Manufacturing” 3D printers builds up objects layer by layer using polymer materials. 3D printing industry now started to uses laser-melted titanium and nickel-chromium powders to build much stronger components.
3D printing used in the space could reduce the cost and frequency of resupply missions. Additionally, NASA plans to use 3D printing to manufacture small satellites that could be launched from the International Space Station and then transmit data to earth.
In August 2013, NASA successfully tested a metal 3D printed rocket component as part of its drive to reduce the costs of space exploration.
