NASA unveils map of most accessible water ice on Mars

NASA unveils map of most accessible water ice on Mars

One of the biggest challenges for sending humans on missions into deep space or to another planet is in taking enough water to support human life and for fuel. This is why it's so important to find water on other planets that humans can access and use. NASA is planning to send humans to Mars in 2024, and ahead of that trip, it has unveiled a map that shows where the easiest to access water ice is on the surface of Mars.

Researchers create material that uses magnetic fields to transform

Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology and Ohio State University have developed a new soft polymer material. The material is called magnetic shape memory polymer. It can use magnetic fields to transform into a variety of shapes. The team thinks that the new material could have a range of new applications from antennas that change frequencies on the fly to gripper arms for handling delicate or heavy objects.
