The Glia model 3D-printed stethoscope

When Dr. Tarek Loubani travelled to Gaza to work as an ER physician, he found that stethoscopes were in short supply. Sometime later, he noticed that a toy stethoscope worked surprisingly well. This prompted him and a team from Canada's Western University to design a plastic stethoscope that can be made anywhere, using a 3D printer.

According to a new study, Jupiter's Great Red Spot (GRS) is growing taller even as the storm's perimeter continues to shrink. The GRS is a colossal swirling storm that has been raging continuously on Jupiter's cloud surface since its discovery in 1831, though its shape and size has altered dramatically in that time, and scientists aren't sure how much longer it will persevere.
