I have 11 3D printed parts. As part of an explorative additive manufacturing technique, specialized engineers play with unique designs & traits, making hardware lighter, stronger, or more responsive. It's key to next-gen spacecraft design.

I'm getting closer to Mars. Once there, I will use my “radar eyes” to see what’s beneath the surface. My ground-penetrating radar can see at least 30 feet (10 meters) down to help search for signs of past microbial life. More on RIMFAX:

Are we there yet? While I put in the miles, go outside and wave hello. October is a great time to see Mars in the night sky, while it is closest to Earth in its orbit around the sun.
