Tried to run a long (~7 hour) print on my new 3DR Simple Delta two days ago. I'm calling the result "Beethoven's Funky Haircut". #3dprinting   #reprap

I saw him at the NYC Maker Faire last year, but there was a mob of people around him, so I wasn't able to talk to him. I was in on the original Printrbot Simple beta and definitely get the nice guy vibe. Happy to see Printrbot doing well.

There's officially an Owl back on the space station! ‪#‎hoot‬ ‪#‎FAU‬
NASA astronaut Steve Swanson and Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) joined their Expedition 39 crewmates when the hatches between the Soyuz TMA-12M spacecraft and the International Space Station officially opened at 10:35 p.m. EDT. Expedition 39 Commander Koichi Wakata of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, Richard Mastracchio of NASA and Mikhail Tyurin of Roscosmos welcomed the new crew members aboard their orbital home.
Expedition 39 will continue to take advantage of the orbital lab's unique microgravity environment and expand the scope of research. The crew will perform experiments that cover human research, biological and physical sciences, technology development and Earth observations as well as engage in educational activities.
Mastracchio, Wakata and Tyurin will return home in May. At that time Swanson will become commander for Expedition 40. Swanson, Skvortsov and Artemyev will return to Earth in September.
