Windows 10 will now warn users if their version will soon be unsupported

That may now be in the past but it seems that Redmond has found another way to notify users that the version of Windows 10 they're on will be reaching its end of life.

NASA funds Archinaut One to 3D print spacecraft components in space

Space exploration missions and rocket launches may be exciting but they're also terribly expensive. Companies like SpaceX and Blue Origin are in a race to make launching spacecraft cheaper by reusing rockets but that's just one aspect of the whole business.
