Army researchers use cutting edge 3D printers

ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. When you walk into this research lab you hear the overpowering hum of massive machines with robotic parts swinging past viewing windows as technicians spray objects with lasers attached to limber metallic arms. Fifty years ago what goes on in this lab would have been considered science fiction, but what these Army researchers do is scientific fact.

Army researchers seek secure quantum communications

ADELPHI, Md. Scientists at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory are pioneering data teleportation -- for the real world. When the USS Enterprise, from the hit television and movie series "Star Trek," beamed individuals to and from the ship, the ship's transporters were moving matter. While fictional technology may stir the imagination, science fiction is more of an inspiration than reality.
