Nasa updating technology for space travel

NASA materials engineers have developed a new tire concept for vehicles that will need to traverse extraterrestrial terrain.

The tire uses a unique alloy which allows it to "remember" its original shape.

Humans are gearing up to start expanding our presence to other nearby celestial bodies.Elon Musk is planning to put humans on the red planet in the near future, while space mining continues to get closer to becoming a reality.These pioneers in space travel and exploration are going to need technology to help them succeed on their various, ambitious missions.Tire manufacturer Michelin is also working on updating their products with a concept for a 3D printed tire that would never need replacing.Within this concept, once tire treads wear out, they could simply be reprinted.

Usually, reinventing the wheel is used as a metaphor for wasting time and resources to create something that already exists.
