 akA new spin on 3D printing technology could have spacecraft building themselves by taking materials from space junk or asteroids.  The "SpiderFab" project has received $100,000 from NASA's innovative Advanced Concepts program to determine the feasibility of such a self-construction design.  With some planning and more funding they hope to launch a 3D-printing test mission within several years.

One of the first images from the Curiosity rover from NASA TV. The rover's wheel is in the lower right corner.


Eight years in planning and eight months in travel, NASA's Mars Science Laboratory landed safely on Mars, resulting in cheers from the NASA team and showing once again the true grit of American ingenuity and determination.  The landing happened around 1:32 a.m. EDT.  The Curiosity rover later sent the first images from the Gale Crater after landing.

As we near closer and closer to the landing, there are some places you can watch the event unfold live as it happens at 1:30 a.m. EDT and before the landing as well.  NASA will attempt to lower the largest rover yet, on Mars and search for signs of water and past life.

Boldly listen to narration of the Mars landing like no one has done before.  Touchdown of Curiosity is scheduled for August 6th at 1:31 a.m. EDT.  NASA's Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover will make one of the most complex and dangerous landings ever attempted by a spacecraft.  Previous versions of spacecrafts have used airbag type landings but due to the immense size of Curiosity it is using a multi-stage landing in its seven minutes of terror.  To help make the public aware of this mission, NASA has produced two videos to inform the world about the mission, narrated by William Shatner and Wil Wheaton.  Both videos are the same, just the narrators differ.  You decide TOS or TNG.
