U.S. Army corrects retirement inequity

 

United States Department of Defense - DoDWashington, D.C. – Secretary of the Army John McHugh recently announced that he has taken action to allow approximately 160 officers selected for separation from the service to remain on active duty or retire with full benefits.

Because of requirements to reduce its overall end strength, the Army conducted involuntary separation and early retirement boards to shrink its officer corps. Among the requirements for separating officers, the Army must consider both the soldier’s active duty service and active commissioned service. However, in considering more than 19,000 potential candidates, the Army made its determination based only on active duty service, not active commissioned service, meaning that one major and several captains were improperly considered for separation. «Read the rest of this article»

NASA reports International Space Station builds Rachet Wrench with 3-D Printer

 

Written by Joshua Buck
NASA Headquarters

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – The International Space Station’s 3-D printer completed the first phase of a NASA technology demonstration by printing a tool with a design file transmitted from the ground to the printer. The tool was a ratchet wrench.

“For the printer’s final test in this phase of operations, NASA wanted to validate the process for printing on demand, which will be critical on longer journeys to Mars,” explained Niki Werkheiser, the space station 3-D printer program manager at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. “In less than a week, the ratchet was designed, approved by safety and other NASA reviewers, and the file was sent to space where the printer made the wrench in four hours.”

The ratchet wrench was designed by Noah Paul-Gin, an engineer at Made In Space Inc., a northern California company that NASA contracted to design, build and operate the printer. Paul-Gin created a 3-D model of the ratchet and made several wrenches, such as the one shown here on an identical printer. (Made In Space)
