Dragon capsule returns to Earth after Space station delivery

A SpaceX Dragon freight send left the International Space Station and came back to Earth Saturday (Jan. 13), wrapping up an about month-long conveyance mission for NASA that likewise denoted the rocket’s second trek to space.

The uncrewed Dragon supply transport isolates from the space station’s mechanical arm at 4:58 a.m. EST (0958 GMT) and started terminating thrusters for its arrival to Earth. The space container sprinkled down in the Pacific Ocean off the bank of Baja California to be recovered by SpaceX, the organization reported at 10:39 a.m. EST (1539 GMT).

“Great splashdown of Dragon affirmed, finishing the second resupply mission to and from the @Space_Station with a flight-demonstrated business rocket,” SpaceX delegates said in a Twitter refresh.

Mythical serpent is conveying about 4,100 lbs. (1,860 kilograms) of payload to Earth, a lot of it science outfit from human and creature inquire about, and different investigations. That rigging incorporates equipment from an analysis by space producing organization Made In Space to 3d-print ZBLAN glass fiber optic wire in space, and a gathering of live mice from NASA’s Rodent Research 6 concentrate to create prescriptions that address muscle misfortune in space., NASA authorities said.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket propelled the Dragon mission on Dec. 15, with the container landing at the International Space Station on Dec. 17. The mission, SpaceX’s thirteenth resupply flight for NASA, conveyed 4,800 lbs. (2,177 kilograms) of provisions and rigging for space travelers.

Notwithstanding conveying freight, the mission denoted a turning point for SpaceX’s rocket reusability program. Both the Dragon case and its Falcon 9 promoter made their second treks to space on this flight. The Falcon 9 sponsor’s first stage already propelled an alternate Dragon container to the space station in June 2017. The Dragon case on this flight, in the mean time, beforehand went by the space station in April 2015.

3D printed microrobots could be used as drug delivery vessels, and more

Here’s another tech to file in the “boundless possibility of 3D printing” category: Two Swiss engineering professors are developing microscopic robots that will work inside the body to transport cargo – namely, drugs.

Work done at ETH Zurich by Bradley Nelson, a professor of robotics and intelligent systems, and Christofer Hierold, a professor of micro and nanosystems, could apply these minirobots to improve minimally invasive surgery, targeted drug deliver, remote sensing and single cell manipulation.

3DPrint.com reports:

With an additive manufacturing technique, the scientists are able to use a complex method to create the micro-robots, or micro-actuators, which are then coated with biomedical materials. The scientists believe they could increase functionality and deliver medication to targets inside the body.

The researchers do this by inserting magnetic nanoparticles into an epoxy resin and using a laser beam which moves repeatedly in a three-dimensional way, which through magnetizing, curing, and building allows them to produce helical structures 60 micrometers in length and 9 micrometers in diameter. Due to this design, the microscopic actuators swim consistently without veering off course, and can be digitally maneuvered.

By coating these micro-robots, which are designed to operate like flagella, originally employing ‘corkscrew propulsion,’ the scientists were able to create a variation due to their microscopic 3D printing technique which gave them the flexibility to modify the shapes into spiral and twisted shapes, as well as double-twisted wires.

They look like this:
