It will take months for investigators to determine the root cause of last week's fatal crash of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo rocket plane — but whatever the cause, the improper configuration of the plane's wing-feathering mechanism would have been enough to result in the plane's catastrophic breakup, according to Princeton engineering professor, Robert Stengel.
3-D printing has been touted as the most amazing thing to happen to manufacturing since the assembly line. The idea is that, someday, every home could be a mini-factory, downloading CAD templates online and printing off eyeglasses, coffee mugs, shoes, and whatever else a household might need. The problem is that right now most 3-D printers can only print the equivalent of plastic toys—plus a few guns, pizzas, and body parts here and there.
