A successful test may help NASA significantly lower the cost and reliability of expensive rocket engine parts by building them with a 3-D printer.
The space agency is hoping technologies such as 3D printers can lower the cost of space hardware.
While a fifty-yard-wide asteroid was speeding toward Earth at 17,000 mph, a meteor crashed in Chebarkul, Russia injuring 1,200 people. And also here's what we are doing about killer asteroids.
SpaceX is preparing to launch the first private-sector flight to the International Space Station. Its Falcon 9 rocket will launch its Dragon capsule at the beginning of May
The Space Launch System (SLS) is NASA's next-generation rocket system that will serve as the centerpiece for deep space exploration for the coming decades.
The Dawn spacecraft has sent back the first picture of the Vesta asteroid, which lies between Mars and Jupiter, after entering its orbit on Friday

Video phones, domed cities, insectoid robots — back in the past, the future looked pretty exciting. Here's a look at the world we could be living in, if the tech had only worked out
NASA hopes to revive a stalled technology, bringing the cost of space travel dramatically lower.
NASA's being reorganized again, and former NASA engineer and Georgia Institute of Technology professor Bobby Braun says he has his dream job.
Self-directed robots, tiny satellites and vehicles that store solar power are next for NASA.
Chrysler and NASA said they have signed a three-year alliance to share information on technologies of mutual interest such as sensors and battery technologies.
NASA unveiled new programs that mark a shift toward commercial manned rockets and the development of new technologies to enable deep space exploration.
Elon Musk's critics have come out of the woodwork because President Obama's NASA budget favors private rocket companies over traditional and expensive NASA space flight programs. Are Musk and SpaceX, the company he founded, qualified to hurl astronauts into space? I think so.
Doc has been a big fan of eBooks since they first started hitting the scene back in 1998 with the Rocket Ebook (which I still have in my "closet of failed technology"). The impact of eBooks will go well beyond their current use as a vehicle for Amazon and Borders to deliver best sellers and could have a big impact on the corporate market. Imagine a time when product catalogs, dealer support materials, repair manuals, and other frequently changed field publications can go out electronically and bypass the printing process entirely.
