3-D Printer Makes A Bionic Ear

This is absolutely fascinating. I can’t even believe we are here, from a technological standpoint. If we can print a bionic ear that is functioning now, imagine where we will be in five years!

Reading about this technology made me think of some other things. We could easily make super-human parts, just as easily as this functioning ear was printed. It is hard to wrap my mind around the concept of 3-D printing, but it’s not that new from what I understand. What’s even harder to image is that they can actually use tissue–live cells–to print 3-D objects.

Technology is incredible! What do you think about this advancement? Is it a miracle, or is it messing with Mother Nature?

Storm on Saturn is a Stunning View

I happened across this article the other day on Facebook. It drew me in because of the stunning image! The storm on Saturn is hauntingly beautiful. It is also massive!

It is interesting that this massive storm is stuck on Saturn’s northern pole. They say it is because of the strong winds constantly blowing north on the planet. This is the first time we have been able to take a sunlit image of the pole. Space is so amazing and beautiful!

Storm on Saturn

Researchers were stunned to see this storm and compared it to a hurricane on Earth, except this one on Saturn is much larger-scale.

Another (even bigger!) storm was photographed on Saturn back in 2006. It is fascinating to be able to view space images of storms on other celestial bodies. What do you think of the pictures?
