NASA backs small 3D-printed sensors for planetary wanderers

Nanomaterials may very well demonstrate the way to the next wave of planetary wanderers. NASA has emptied $2 million into a Goddard Space Flight Center group creating 3D-printed sensors whose nanomaterials make them minor, ultra-sensitive and resistant to radiation. The point is to assemble a gadget that can detect minuscule (on the parts-per-billion-level) measures of…
