CIRAS Digest: Wednesday, March 4, 2015

  • The Composites World website has just posted a piece about a September 2014 trade show in Chicago, where team headed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee 3-D printed a car.
  • The Evansville Courier Press has a paywall-sheltered story about a program in Indiana to address a manufacturing worker shortage. The link is video of a guy talking about the program.
  • Meanwhile The Economist compares Indianapolis and Gary, Ind., as part of an argument that it takes “strong relationships between the government, academia and business” to build a strong manufacturing economy.
  • And lastly, we include this one from the Washington Post, simply because the headline is awesome: “Decades of human waste have made Mount Everest a ‘fecal time bomb.’”
