Lockheed-Martin makes its largest part for spacecraft with 3D printer: 4-foot wide dome for fuel tanks for satellites:

Traditional methods for making such parts in titanium would have resulted in about 80% waste materials and have required 2 years to make. The 3D process took only 3 months.

The Bad Astronomer explains.

He also points out that this is the first phase in a current project which will involve coordination of radio telescopes not just in South Africa but in Australia which collectively will be called the Square Kilometer Array (SKA). While that name does reflect the total collection area that all of these radio telescopes will have, the more important aspect is that with the much longer baseline of about 12,000 km in a straight line between them, SKA should be able to resolve more details that even the above pic while that full collective gathering of radio should enable SKA to find fainter radio sources.

He also noted that full funding for SKA is still uncertain so parts may not be built.
Mars Express caught this pic of A Martian dust storm "front":

Mind you: this is NOT the current dust storm which has currently enveloped Mars (which began at the end of May), but "only" a smaller dust storm which happened this past April close to the edge of Mars' northern ice cap.

He thinks that the lynx may have used him to help catch a snowshoe rabbit.

Put here because this rescue was science versus nature. Also, those guys are badass for real.

The water was apparently pretty cold, so you might have to account for shrinkage. :shrug:

Anyway, sounds like we accidentally terraformed Mars. Way to go, everybody.
