NASA is everywhere – our space technology turns up in nearly all corners of modern life. The world has come to rely on GPS signal correction software created by NASA, which enables precision agriculture, airplane navigation, smartphones, Earth science and much more. A lightweight, high-pressure tank NASA invented to hold rocket fuel now stores life-saving oxygen to keep pilots, firefighters and intensive care patients breathing — not to mention gases that power city buses and even paintball guns. Fitness enthusiasts may be surprised to learn about NASA’s contribution to the Bowflex Revolution resistance-exercise home gym.
