Despite sending humans to Earth’s orbit and the moon, the idea of humans surviving in outer space must seem like science fiction. Creating an environment that can sustain human life in the almost total absence of gravity, as well as no electrical outlets or oxygen, takes a lot of experimentation. That’s been the job of teams of dedicated scientists who have facilitated some of the most unforgettable moments in space exploration.
24/7 Tempo reviewed dozens of modern products that exist because of advancements in the field of space exploration. We compiled 30 common items that were invented for use in the race for space.
Unlike modern inventions we no longer use, these inventions are employed daily to save lives, improve environmental sustainability, and keep humans healthy.
