Provided by Elizabeth Landau, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory Open a door and watch what happens -- the hinge allows it to open and close, but doesn't permanently bend. This simple concept of mechanical motion is vital for making all kinds of movable structures, including mirrors and antennas on spacecraft. Material scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, are working on new, innovative methods of creating materials that can be used for motion-based...

Whitney Clavin, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory A new survey of galaxies by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope is taking a plunge into the deep and uncharted waters of our cosmos. In one of the longest surveys the telescope will have ever performed, astronomers have begun a three-month expedition trawling for faint galaxies billions of light-years away. The results are already yielding surprises. "If you think of our survey as fishing for galaxies in the cosmic sea, then we are finding...

Elizabeth Landau, NASA JPL / Cynthia Eller, Caltech 3-D printers can create all kinds of things, from eyeglasses to implantable medical devices, straight from a computer model and without the need for molds. But for making spacecraft, engineers sometimes need custom parts that traditional manufacturing techniques and standard 3-D printers can't create, because they need to have the properties of multiple metals. Now, researchers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California,...
