Massive, AI-powered robots are 3D-printing entire rockets.
Relativity Space may have the biggest metal 3D printers in the world, and they're cranking out parts to reinvent the rocket industry here—and on Mars.
Roll up the loading bay doors at Relativity’s Los Angeles headquarters and you’ll find four of the largest metal 3D printers in the world, churning out rocket parts day and night. The latest model of the company’s proprietary printer, dubbed Stargate, stands 30 feet tall and has two massive robotic arms that protrude like tentacles from the machine. The Stargate printers will manufacture about 95 percent, by mass, of Relativity’s first rocket, named Terran-1. The only parts that won’t be printed are the electronics, cables, and a handful of moving parts and rubber gaskets.

Our hero, Spaceman Spiff, deftly maneuvers around rock formations on the planet ZK-5 as he flees from his Muck Monster pursuers! The Muck Monsters line up to fire a Fatality-Flare missile, and Spiff tightens his grip, preparing to countermeasure!
Spiff's ship, the Saucer, uses a single Freem Drive which powers the thrusters. Using this, it is known that he is able to reach the Fifth Dimension. It also features a Hyper Light Drive which can propel him to light speed, at least. Armed with a whole host of exotic weaponry such as the computer-guided Death Ray, Mertilizer Beam, Phospho Bombs, Mordo Blasters and more, the Saucer is more than capable of applying proper ordnance to a mission.
We are living in the future. @porsche and @boeing announced a joint collaboration on a new electric flying car. Artist’s concept of how the new air vehicle may look.
Is this the future of air travel?

Former NASA Scientist Gilbert Levin believes we have already discovered life on Mars in the 70s. Levin led NASA’s Viking mission to Mars in 1976, finding evidence of surface water, methane, ammonia, and “wormlike features” in images taken by Curiosity rover.
