How NASA’s space research ends up in earthly products


NASA is best known for exploring space, but the agency’s technology is also touching down on Earth.

A new book, called Spinoff 2022, shines the spotlight on the products that have emerged from NASA’s research.

They include an air purifier that’s on tech for growing plants in space; blankets crafted from a substance that NASA created to chill rocket fuel; and underwear for race car drivers that uses material originally developed for spacesuits.
