What the fuck has NASA done to make your life awesome?

Kid friendly version here

Developed the most efficient insulator known to man (aerogel), currently used in fridges, cars, and shoe soles.

Fail to Launch That rockets!

Whoa, Really?

"It’s as light as air and feels like styrofoam to the touch... With individual pores only a few nanometers wide, it has the lowest thermal conductivity of any known solid.

While NASA uses Aspen’s aerogel for cryogenic applications, there is a dizzying array of industrial applications for the product, including insulation for piping, building and construction, appliances and refrigeration equipment, and trucks and automobiles."
