Take a look at the things that came from NASA technology.
LOOK – Do you know that some of the things that we can find around us use space technology? There are actually a lot of them which came from NASA Technology.
Science and Technology has indeed come a very long way. A lot of inventions and innovations have already taken place and the world now is so much different compared to what it was in the past.
New discoveries have undeniably affected the change. Based on a recent feature article in NASA, there are things which we might not know came from NASA Technology. Here are five ‘favorite things’ that use space technology.
1. Mobile Phones’ Cameras
According to the feature report, the sensor in the mobile phones that pave the way for the photographs to be recorded was originally designed for space photography.
It was in the 1990s when an engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Eric Fossum, invented it through the use of complementary metal-oxide semiconductors or CMOs. It is further stated that the first person to successfully adapt it in taking photographs is Fossum.
Florikan’ founder Ed Rosenthal, with the helped of NASA researchers, perfected the formula for the fertilizer that enables the plants to get the appropriate amount of nutrients at just the appropriate time. The fertilizer is now being used across the globe.
3. Brain Surgery
According to the feature article, in cutting and cauterizing the tissue, the bipolar forceps utilize electricity which in turn produces waste heat. Thermacore Inc. then came up with a ‘mini heat pipe’ for the bipolar forceps.
4. Crash Test Cameras
A camera that could film up to 1,000 frames every second was built by Integrated Design Tools. The said camera can also back up all the date as fast as it can frame it. Nowadays, the same technology is being utilized in recording crash tests which aids in assuring the our safety on the roads.
5. Earthquake Protection
The NASA engineers came up with a new technology. The said technology utilizes the liquid fuel in the rocket to stay away from vibrations which can be dangerous.
Based on the report, in Brooklyn, an adapted version of it has already been installed to prevent Skyscrapers and bridges’ destruction when earthquakes would hit the place.
