NASA Funds 3D Printing Pizza? The Jetson’s Space Age Oven Will Soon Be A Reality!

NASA 3D Printer for Pizza

NASA is putting their money where their mouth is by funding a study into 3D-printed food. As Quartz discloses, mechanical engineer Anjan Contractor got a $125,000 grant from the company to construct a prototype 3D printer with the purpose of automating food production. It’s hoped the system can offer astronauts food throughout long-distance space travel, however its developer has the loftier purpose of resolving the enhancing food scarcities worldwide by reducing waste. The software application for the printer will be open-source, while the hardware is based upon the open-source RepRap Mendel 3D printer.

The idea is to make use of fundamental foundation of food in changeable powder cartridges. By incorporating each block, a large range of foods must have the ability to be developed by the printer. The cartridges will have a service life of 30 years, even more than long enough to make it possible for long-distance area travel. After showing his system deals with a standard level by printing chocolate, Specialist will begin his job within the next couple of weeks by trying to print a pizza.

The pizza printer will initially print a layer of dough, which will be prepared while being printed, prior to blending tomato powder with water and oil to print a tomato sauce. The topping for the pizza will be a nondescript “protein layer.” It’s very early days for the task, however if it succeeds it would be a genuine turning point en route to the robot maid “Rosie” in the cartoon Jetson’s everyday life of making pizza magically appear.

Mayweather vs Canelo Fight Sept. 14, 2013

Mayweather vs Canelo Fight Showtime Boxing Sept. 14, 2013.

This has got to be one of the most highly anticipated match up of the decade!

mayweather vs canelo fight

As a fan of both fighters, but rooting for the Red Headed Mexican, I’ve been waiting for this match up to finally get here and so have all the other fans. You know Alverez will have all of Mexico on his side, and with his pride for his country he is fighting for his people. Both are undefeated in their careers Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KOs) and Canelo Alverez(42-0-1, 30 KOs). Canelo being the younger of the two boxers, with the power and size on Mayweather has become an international sensation. Starting his professional career at the age 15, he too has a lot of experience…but is he the one that will FINALLY end Floyd’s reign of being the world’s greatest Pound for Pound boxer?

Nobody has done it yet and Mayweather is confident as usual that Alverez or anyone else can’t beat him…Period! Both from the outside looking in seem to be very different people from how they live and act in and out of the ring, but come Sept. 14, 2013, 1 man will remain undefeated and crowned the New King of Boxing!

I personally haven’t been excited about boxing in a long time…. until now! This fight is what the fans have been waiting for! Canelo will say that Floyd’s influence has allowed him to pick and choose his opponents throughout his career. Yet Mayweather has fought and defeated tens of Champion Boxers in his career and defeated them all.

Is Canelo at the young age of 23 ready for this challenge?

Who do you think will win this fight? Who are YOU going to cheer for?
