Man In Space

Astronaut in outer space

Space explorations sometime appear far removed from the day to day experience here on earth. However, investments made on the mission have had a ripple effect here on earth.

Key takeaways:
· Invisible dental braces were an invention of space programs. The transparent ceramic brace brackets make teeth-straightening less embarrassing.

· Space programs have pioneered technologies such as medical imaging such as the computed axial tomography (CAT) scan and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners.

· Ear thermometers were developed and first used by space scientists. It is a camera-like lens that detects infrared energy emitted as heat.

Freeze-dried food – this reduces food weight and increases shelf life without sacrificing nutritional value, a vital invention to allow astronauts to survive in space. Its spin-offs, from freeze-dried fruit and vegetables to ready meals, can be found in any supermarket.
