See +Wil Wheaton in his 1987 movie The Curse at
His language now and then.

Anton Yelchin's jeep was on the recall list for the problem that caused his death. The leased vehicle was not worked on and the problem recall was in April 2016.
Why was it never fixed?
Did he have to die by a repairable product defect?
Will this finally be the nail in the coffin for that type of control on automatic vehicles.
What happen to the dead man switch that had to be engaged to use to shift gears?

What is it about young talented actors dying before their time Anton Yelchin was only 27 and very active in his art. Now he joins the growing number gone before their time. Now Star Trek will need another Pavel. Will miss that natural Russian accent. I hope they find another to keep the character alive.

3D Printing Our Future in Space and on Earth | TEDx Talks
How to Build a Moonbase with Lunar Regolith via 3D Printing
European Space Agency | Tommaso Ghidini | TEDxESA

Science Beyond Fiction TEDxESA talk at the European Space Agency on November 11, 2015:
"No matter what you take with you when going up into space, it’s going to be complicated and expensive. Very expensive. If we talk about longer missions, we better come up with something sustainable. Tommaso Ghidini, Head of the Materials Technology Section at the European Space Agency, might have an answer."

"Tommaso and his team have already come quite close to realising this goal with some mind blowing 3D printing results. What’s even more interesting is that this technology is not only made for space, but can also be used in other environments."

Tommaso Ghidini obtained his Phd in experimental and numerical Fracture Mechanics at the Institute of Materials Research of the German Aerospace Center. After having worked on major civil and military aircraft developments such as the A380, A350 and A400M at AIRBUS Industries, he joined the European Space Agency (ESA) in 2007. In 2009 he became the VEGA Launcher Product Assurance and Safety Engineer and since January 2012, Dr. Tommaso Ghidini is the Head of the Materials Technology Section at the European Space Agency. The Section qualifies for space flight all metallic materials and related advanced manufacturing technologies and is in charge of the European strategic roadmap on 3D printing for space applications.

The theme of the first official TEDxESA 2015 event was Science Beyond Fiction.

ESA has sites in several European countries, but the European Space Research and Technology Center (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, is the largest. ESTEC is our technical heart—the incubator of the European space effort—where most ESA projects are born and where they are guided through the various phases of development.

+Richard Branson It is hard to make it in the USA if you are a citizen of the USA, especially if you can not find work for being an ex felon, but foreigner even convicted murderers or rapists get a free ride and even able to by a gun and use it on Americans. Obama's rule of leadership, disarm America and let ISIS take it.
