ICYMI: Boeing’s swanky new space suits and 3D-printable skin
The links from today’s post:
Today on In Case You Missed It: Boeing debuted its next-generation flight suit that astronauts will be wearing aboard its Starliner CST-100 when the spacecraft takes off in 2018. They’re cooler, lighter and far more fashionable than the ones US Shuttle crews had to wear into space. Plus, who doesn’t want to look like Benny the blue LEGO space guy?
That’s not all, a team of Spanish researchers have announced that they can now “print” human skin from their prototype 3D bioprinter. Simple culture some cells, feed them into the printer and this thing will spit out functional human skin. If only this technology were around in 1990, Liam Neeson wouldn’t have had to go and kill all those folks who burned him alive.
And finally, we got your TL;DR right here, folks. As always, please share any interesting tech or science videos you find by using the #ICYMI hashtag on Twitter for @mskerryd.
