These lessons span colonial to Cold War America and cover a range of political, social, economic, and cultural topics. They are continuing to expand the Reading Like a Historian program to World History.  Currently there are 15 lessons from across the world history sequence with more lesson plans under development that will be released in the next few months.

The 198x Vietnamese generation (in their early 30s now) grew up with Tsubasa, Teppi, Dragon Balls, Doraemon, TKKG. Mostly about friendship &  hardworking spirit than super hero.


Quote from article: "Do you remember spending sleepless nights as a kid, reading your favorite superhero comic books? If you do, then you might also remember that “giving up” is not what the superheroes teach us. Well, no one is going to get a neutron laser or an indestructible shield for sure! However, there are some effective and invaluable lessons every business owner can learn from his favorite superhero, and implement them on the business battlefield."

First 3D Printer Launching to Space Station in 2014

First 3D Printer Launching to Space Station in 2014 | Interesting Articles |

A 3D printer is slated to arrive at the International Space Station next year, where it will crank out the first parts ever manufactured off planet Earth.

The company Made in Space is partnering with NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center on the 3D Printing in Zero G Experiment (or 3D Print for short), which aims to jump-start an off-planet manufacturing capability that could aid humanity's push out into the solar system.


"The 3D Print experiment with NASA is a step towards the future. The ability to 3D-print parts and tools on demand greatly increases the reliability and safety of space missions while also dropping the cost by orders of magnitude," Made in Space CEO Aaron Kemmer said in a statement.


"The first printers will start by building test coupons, and will then build a broad range of parts, such as tools and science equipment," he added.

The 3D printer is slated to blast off in August 2014, tagging along with a cargo mission private spaceflight company SpaceX is launching to the orbiting lab for NASA.


The device will build objects layer by layer out of polymers and other materials, using a technique called extrusion additive manufacturing. The blueprints for these objects will be pre-loaded onto a computer bound for the orbiting lab or uplinked from Earth, Made in Space officials said.

Advocates say 3D printing can help make living in space easier and cheaper.


For example, more than 30 percent of the spare parts currently aboard the International Space Station can be manufactured by Made in Space's machine, company co-founder and chief technologist Jason Dunn told NASA chief Charles Bolden and congressman Mike Honda (D-Calif.) during a presentation at the agency's Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Ca.
