Image of the Week: The Cratered Moon

Thumbnail
The speckled object depicted here is Callisto, Jupiter’s second largest moon. Similar in appearance to a golf ball, Callisto is covered almost uniformly with pockmarks and craters across its surface, evidence of relentless collisions. In fact, Callisto is the most heavily cratered object in the Solar System.

Customized Printed Tissue Combines with Patient’s

The trachea is a tube that connects the upper respiratory tract to the lungs and helps carry air to the lungs. Traditional treatments for tracheal diseases usually involve removal of the affected tracheal segment. However, 3-D printing can effectively create a biodegradable tracheal segment containing a patient’s own cells for use in complex tracheal reconstruction.
