The itsy-bitsy spider prints in 3D

NASA has come up with a new take on an old arachnid -- a robotic spider that "prints" in 3D.  

The "Spider-fab" as it's been named will help astronauts print in the zero gravity of space making larger structures possible.  Right now, engineers are limited because of cargo holds and gravity.  To be able to build in space, all you need is the Spider-fab, the printing materials and a plan.  

The Spider-fab is still in the development phase.

  • Scientists have discovered another Earthlike planet in a nearby solar system just 39 light years away. The rocky, super-sized planet, named LHS 1140b, is inside the habitable zone, or Goldilocks Zone, orbiting a red dwarf star with an average temperature that could support liquid water. >> Read more trending news The planet is almost seven times larger than Earth and about 11,000 miles in diameter, according to a new study published in the journal Nature. 'This is the most exciting exoplanet I've seen in the past decade,' lead study author Jason Dittmann of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) said in a statement.  'We could hardly hope for a better target to perform one of the biggest quests in science − searching for evidence of life beyond Earth.' Researchers discovered the planet using the transit method, which measures how much light a potential planet blocks as it crosses in front of a star. >> Related: Scientists find 7 ‘Earth-sized planets’ orbiting star 40 light-years away, NASA says Scientist believe that 1140b could be close enough that newer telescopes now under construction might be able to search for specific gasses, like oxygen, in the future. Thousands of exoplanets in thousands of planetary systems have been discovered so far, and potentially habitable planets have also been found.  >> Related: Space travel is measured in light years, but what’s a light-year anyway? NASA announced the discovery earlier this year of seven Earth-sized planets in the habitable zone orbiting a star called TRAPPIST-1, but more study is needed to see if they could support life.  
  • Aaron Hernandez’s fiancée has filed an injunction to have any and all evidence from his death preserved on behalf of her daughter. The suit was filed in Bristol County, where Shayana Jenkins lives with the daughter she and Hernandez had together. >> Read more trending news  Recordings and logs of the cell block, writings by Hernandez, physical evidence from the night of his death and any photos taken from the scene are among the specific evidence Jenkins has asked to be preserved. The court filing was signed the same day as Hernandez was found hanged in his prison cell at Souza-Baranowski Correction Center in Shirley, Mass. The medical examiner has officially ruled the death a suicide, but Hernandez’s attorneys have promised a full investigation. Attorney Jose Baez was at the Watertown funeral home for several hours Thursday while renowned forensic pathologist Michael Baden performed a second autopsy on the body. The Medical Examiner officially ruled Hernandez's death a suicide and died by asphyxia. Officials noted there were no signs of a struggle and Hernandez was alone in his cell at the time. They said they found three handwritten notes in his call, along with a reference to the Bible verse John 3:16, which was something Baez would not comment on during his news conference Thursday afternoon when challenged by FOX25's Bob Ward. 'So there was no John 3:16 on his forehead?' Ward asked. 'If you have no questions specifically dealing...,' Baez said. 'But was there 3:16 written on his forehead?' Ward asked. 'Do you understand what I'm saying?' Baez replied. 'I am asking you. You know,' Ward replied. 'How do I know? Was I there?' Baez asked. 'You were at the autopsy,' Ward said. One thing Baez was vocal about was his criticism of the Medical Examiner saying Hernandez's family wanted to donate his brain to Boston University so it could be studied for evidence of brain injuries, but the Medical Examiner would not release it. 'It's our position that they are holding Aaron Hernandez's brain illegally,' Baez said. 'They have released the body and withheld Aaron's brain.' The Medical Examiner's Office released a statement in response saying, 'The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is conducing an investigation into the circumstances of Aaron Hernandez's death, which may require further analysis of his body. Once that is complete the brain will be released to Boston University. No one is going to stand in the way of the family's wishes for Boston University to have Aaron Hernandez's brain. Baez is vowing to leave no stone unturned in his investigation. >>MORE: Read the full complaint
  • The father of NFL hopeful and Florida State University star Travis Rudolph was killed this weekend in an accidental shooting, according to reports from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. Darryl Rudolph was shot Saturday morning while he was doing repair work at Sugar Daddy’s Adult Cabaret on Military Trail, south of Southern Boulevard. >> Read more trending news Officials say Rudolph, 55, was working in the back storage room of the club at about 9:30 a.m. The club hired him to do odd jobs, mainly repair work, the sheriff’s office said. A coworker was in an adjacent room moving a firearm off a shelf. The gun discharged and fired a bullet through a wall and into Rudolph’s neck/back area. He was rushed to St. Mary’s Medical Center where he died. An initial investigation deemed the shooting accidental. The sheriff’s office stressed the investigation is active and ongoing. It is unclear who owned the gun or whether anyone will face charges in the shooting. Sugar Daddy’s has been the backdrop — both directly and indirectly — of numerous gun-related incidents. Greg Bryant, the former standout football player at American Heritage, spent his final hours alive at Sugar Daddy’s nearly a year ago. The 21-year-old was heading home to Delray Beach after a night watching his musician friends perform at the suburban West Palm club. He was fatally shot May 7 on Interstate 95. No one has been arrested in Bryant’s death. Travis Rudolph, a West Palm Beach native and Cardinal Newman High School graduate, made national headlines last summer when he ate with a middle school student with autism who was sitting alone. The wide receiver and his Seminoles teammates were visiting the student’s Tallahassee middle school. As a junior in 2016, Rudolph led the Seminoles in receptions (56), receiving yards (840) and receiving touchdowns (seven). He left Florida State a year early but still managed to sneak into the university’s all-time top 10 in receptions (153) and receiving yards (2,311). In March, Rudolph told The Post he was happy with his decision to enter the NFL draft early. He had private workouts with the New England Patriots and the Miami Dolphins planned for April.
