Infographic: NASA – Spinning Off Since 1962

I don’t often post infographics here on The Adventure Blog, but I found this one to be particularly interesting, and worth sharing. I’m a big proponent of space exploration of course, and it always pains me when I hear people ask why we’re “wasting so much money” on space when we have so many problems to take care of here at home. This inforgraphic takes a look at the technology that has come out of the space program over the years, much of which has had a direct impact on our daily lives. NASA develops a lot of things, that later go on to make our lives safer and better. So, while we explore what lies beyond our planet, we are also in turn making things better here too. This makes me wonder, why aren’t we spending more money on our space program?
