The mysterious ‘dark’ energy that permeates the universe is slowly eroding | Wired

“Physicists have deduced subtle hints that the mysterious ‘dark’ energy that drives the universe to expand faster and faster may be slightly weakening with time. It’s a finding that has the potential to shake the foundations of physics. ‘If true, it would be the first real clue we have gotten about the nature of dark energy in 25 years,’ said Adam Riess, an astrophysicist at Johns Hopkins University who won the Nobel Prize for co-discovering dark energy in 1998.”

Makers of the world’s largest 3D printer just beat their own record | Popular Science

“At a reveal event earlier this week, UMaine designers at the Advanced Structures & Composite Center (ASCC) showed off their ‘Factory of the Future 1.0,’ aka the FoF 1.0. At four times the size of their previous Guinness World Record holder from 2019, MasterPrint, FoF 1.0 is capable of printing 96-by-32-by-18-foot tall structures and objects. Such sizable creations also require an impressive amount of building materials, however. According to its creators, FoF 1.0 can churn through upwards of 500-pounds of eco-friendly thermoplastic polymers per hour.”
