“The Eagle has landed”

Lockheed Martin has revealed its concept for a new crewed lunar lander: a single stage, fully reusable system that incorporates flight-proven technologies and systems from the NASA Orion spacecraft. In its initial configuration, the lander would deliver a crew of four and 2,000 pounds of cargo to the Moon’s surface for up to two weeks.

‘Minecraft' getting kids into coding

Stephen Foster, CEO and Co-Founder of ThoughtSTEM, has a new outlook on STEM education and the utilities that can be used to get kids involved in software coding.

magniX and AeroTEC to fly all-electric eCaravan May 28

Mobility is in the midst of an electric revolution, propelled by industry innovators such as magniX. Headquartered in Redmond, Washington, the magniX team is focused on revolutionizing electric motors for commercial aviation applications.

igus develops 3D-printable bearing material with low-friction properties

igus has developed what it claims is the world’s first tribologically enhanced plastic filament for 3D printers, which are used to print full-size, three-dimensional objects. Specifically created for motion control applications, the low-friction material is 50 times more resistant to wear and abrasion than conventional 3D printer materials, according to the German plastics company.

Zwick Roell provides flexible materials testing over a wide temperature range

To enable the tests required for development work to be performed with maximum efficiency, the Zwick Roell Group (ZwickRoell) – a global supplier of materials testing machines based out of Ulm, Germany – developed a materials testing machine that can be equipped with both a temperature chamber and a high-temperature furnace.

X marks the spot

LiquidPiston Inc. has developed a new engine that can run on multiple fuels, including diesel, jet fuel, and gasoline. This platform uses an optimized thermodynamic cycle and a new rotary engine architecture and could increases flight endurance over conventional UAV engines by greater than 50%.

Working pilot recruitment from all angles

In conjunction with National STEM Day, United States Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson took to Twitter to promote science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) with a little help from Sesame Street's Elmo and Abby Cadabby. In a brief message, Wilson talked about the importance that STEM education plays in aerospace and defense careers.
