3D printing the Eta Carinae Star System.

Posted on Updated on

According to NASA’s  Scientists,” Eta Carinae is a bright star system consisting of two stars surrounded by gas. Scientists have been using computer simulations to study star systems.  Computer simulations can be difficult to study on a 2D screen.  Therefore scientists used the 3d printer to create a 3D model of the star system. The 3D model makes it easier to study the star system.¨
