In our impression, NASA is often associated with distant space exploration. However, the research of this government agency is not all distant planets, sophisticated detectors, and some of their research projects are very close to our daily life, such as hair dryers, water softeners, skin creams and mine removal devices. NASA even has a cool interactive tool --NASA Home and City, showing the impact of space research on humans living on Earth.
In this interactive tool, there are two columns: “Explore City” (EXPLORE CITY) and “Explore Family” (EXPLORE HOME). In the exploration of the city, NASA lists many of the impacts of related projects on the development of the Earth's cities during the space exploration process. For example, the exploration and experience accumulated in the exploration of robot development has greatly helped the production of robots on the earth, such as airports. Stress test and more. In the Explore Family section, NASA's space suits have an impact on hair tools and warm clothing.
