What did NASA ever do for us?

NASA’s knack for turning space-age tech into everyday wonders is something you’ve got to see to believe! Take memory foam, for example. Originally designed to keep pilots comfy and safe, it’s now the reason we all enjoy those super-snug mattresses and cushy shoes. Who knew that a quest for ultimate comfort in the skies would change how we lounge and walk on terra firma?

And let’s not forget about those scratch-resistant lenses. Born from the need to protect astronaut visors from space debris, this tech now keeps our glasses clear and scratch-free, making blurry vision and constant replacements a thing of the past.

It’s incredible how NASA’s out-of-this-world innovations have seamlessly woven into the fabric of our daily lives, enhancing comfort and convenience in ways we often take for granted. Ready to dive deeper and uncover more of these stellar transformations? Join us on a journey to discover how space technology is making life on Earth better, one invention at a time. Let’s explore the cosmos of NASA’s innovations together!

Come along for an exploration of innovation, play the NASA/ not NASA game and learn about how you can use NASA patents for your project, as well as how to protect your own IP – it’s going to be a fun, interactive and educational session!
