Voormi's "Core Construction" isn't a new material or even a new type of rain jacket. It's a new production process that allows the Colorado-based startup to weave a technical membrane straight into the fabric of a one-layer item of clothing.

Are we facing a lunar land grab? Not exactly. The report takes the form of a letter from the Federal Aviation Agency to Bigelow Aerospace—a private company that has developed expandable living modules for the ISS and hopes to put inflatable, modular living stations on the Moon and even Mars. The letter, dated from December, is all about whether Bigelow would be able to claim the right to develop a habitat on a particular part of the Moon—wit ... Read More →
