3D Printing the Eta Carinae Star System

——————————————————

According to the 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 the 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.
