Lamar Alexander: There’s a bipartisan compromise at hand to end surprise Medical Billing, finally

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Americans have been through a lot this year. They’re worried about their health, the economy and whether they can provide for their families. Congress can take one of these worries off of their plate by eliminating the risk that they’ll receive a surprise medical bill.

Too many patients receive a surprise medical bill after seeing a health care provider they were not able to choose: maybe they needed emergency care at an out-of-network hospital, or maybe they were treated by an out-of-network doctor even though they chose an in-network hospital.

NASA plans to use 3D Printing Construction Systems for exploration of Moon, Mars

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – The process of building landing pads, habitats, and roads on the Moon will likely look different than the common construction site on Earth. Excavation robots, for one, will need to be lightweight yet capable of digging in reduced gravity. A large-scale construction system could be autonomous and equipped to work without astronauts’ help.

As part of the Artemis program, NASA has a concept for the core surface elements needed to establish a sustained presence on the Moon, which emphasizes mobility to allow astronauts to explore more and conduct more science.
