State of Public EV Charging Infrastructure in Key Regions
There is undoubtedly a huge push to build global public DC fast charging networks. The US government is providing more than US$5 billion in funding and incentives under the NEVI program to build a coast-to-coast fast charging network, and many countries in Europe are rolling out similar programs to spur electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure growth following AFIR regulations. This premium article takes a look at the current state of public EV charging infrastructure in the US, EU, and China with a focus on number of installations and segmentation between AC/DC type chargers.

3D Printed Metal Parts Go Hypersonic—at Zero Miles Per Hour
"Supersonics" denotes aircraft that break the sound barrier at Mach 1 and extends to around Mach 5, which is five times the speed of sound and more than 3,500 mph at sea level. But very weird stuff starts happening as that upper speed is reached—you enter the hypersonics environment. Exploring that unusual environment turns out to be a perfect proving ground for metal 3D printing, as researchers are learning.
