By | Copyright Year:2017 | ISBN-13: 9780170379489

Amazing technology has been developed for space travel. Often, this technology can then be adapted to be used on Earth, in many different ways.

Solar panels developed to power spacecraft are now used to provide power for people’s homes. Protective plastic developed for space helmets is used to make lenses for the glasses people wear every day. These and other important Earth technologies might never have been developed without the special challenges of space travel.
