NASA is funding research into 3D-printed food. Mechanical engineer Anjan Contractor received a $125,000 grant from the agency to build a prototype 3D printer with the aim of automating food creation. It’s hoped the system could provide astronauts food during long-distance space travel, but its creator has the loftier aim of solving the increasing food shortages around the world by cutting down on waste. The software for the printer will be open-source, while the hardware is based on the open-source RepRap Mendel 3D printer.

These hand crafted wallets are available in so many designs you could have one for every day of the week.
Baking soda volcanoes just aren’t cutting it anymore. American public school students in science classes of the near-future should be taught that human activity is leading to global warming by the end of eighth grade, that DNA supports the theory of evolution by the end of high school, and that human beings can engineer cleaner energy sources and more abundant food and water supplies, according to a new national education plan for kindergarten through high school, due to be released by the end of March.
The plan, called Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), is being finalized right now by a crack team of 41 experts from around the country, made up of science teachers, school officials and even a researcher at the DuPont chemical company. It’s completely voluntary and up to each state’s of board of education to adopt the final plan, and 26 states have been helping craft it over the past two years.

NINTENDO—THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY
Julia Lepetit and Andrew Bridgman of Dorkly have provided an alternate view on the definition of insanity and I have to say I couldn’t agree more!
I only hope that one of the many Far Cry 3 modders out there will see this comic and create a new world where Miyamoto is the lead.
Instead of skinning animals for crafting, you are skinning goombas, turtles, and other Nintendo-inspired critters and when Miyamoto takes over an enemy camp and discovers his Princess is in another camp, he lights the place on fire!
