NASA is Everywhere!

NASA has posted a pretty cool new site to help people understand how they have impacted everyone’s life in so many ways. It’s called NASA @ Home and City. They’re want to remind everyone that they’re not just about “space”. While a lot of their technologies really aren’t spatial (cosmetics, for example), there is an impressive display of geographic related materials they have impacted. Stuff from environmental cleanup and monitoring to simply travel technologies. There’s plenty on the site which you’ll recognize as NASA technology, but I’ll bet there’s more than one thing you never thought was related to NASA. I have to say I was surprised about how much they impacted large plasma displays, for example.
