A gross fact of life is that were all ingesting plastic. Turtles eat plastic. Birds eat plastic. And one study found that humans eat a credit card worth of plastic each week. Now, scientists have engineered enzymes to eat plastic, toobut that may actually be a good thing.
In a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on Monday, scientists found further evidence that the bacterium Ideonella sakaiensis produces two enzymes that break plastic down. Specifically, they …

NASA is exploring additive manufacturing to build rocket engines as well as potential outposts on the Moon and Mars. Nearer in the future is a different milestone: NASA’s Perseverance rover, which lands on the Red Planet on Feb. 18, 2021, carries 11 metal parts made with 3D printing (some of which were produced by Carpenter Technology as we reported in this exclusive interview for 3dpbm’s AM Focus 2020 Service Providers eBook)
Using 3D printing allows engineers to play with unique designs and t…

7,500 light-years away (or approximately 44,090,000,000,000,000 miles) from our tiny rock floating through space is the Soul Nebula (also known as Westerhout 5) in the constellation of Cassiopeia. And in one tiny section of that nebula is J025157.5+600606, a dense gaseous formation in which planets are born.
They’re called Free-floating Evaporating Gaseous Globules (FrEGGs – no, not these), which were only discovered a few years ago. This particular one occupies an extremely small part of the S…
