Ora, se estes bacanos podem fazer Plásticos que propulsinam Foguetes, talvez um dia as Impressoras 3D caseiras poderão ter Bobines desse Material, e poder-se-há fabricar um Foguete, com propulsão e tudo!!!
SpaceShipTwo to be fueled by thermoset plastic similar to nylon
As the still-to-be-announced date of the first commercial flight of Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo approaches, more and more of the technology involved is getting nailed down. A case in point is the company's announcement that it has decided which fuel will be used in the first passenger-carrying flights of the suborbital spacecraft. The solid fuel grains that will fuel the world’s largest operational hybrid rocket will be a thermoset plastic similar to nylon.

Introducing PETBOT: A node.js Telepresence RobotAri RizzitanoRecently we added a new member to our engineering team. This is PETBOT, aka Providence Engineering Telepresence roBOT.It’s a telepresence robot I built for our office, consisting of an iPad mounted on a lightweight chassis powered by an RC car. To operate it, you open up a video chat session with the iPad, then control the robot from your browser using the web interface.PETBOT can see, move, talk, and, like any startup employee, play foosball. Or at least try to.
