No, I hadn't heard. That's pretty cool.
I don't think a lot of people know how many things that were developed for NASA make their way into our lives on Earth.
One that comes to mind, although not real consequential, is light weight metal used to make racing bikes.
I'm sure those metals have also been used in the aeronautics industry as well.
I think of these things as lateral perks.
In other words, the costs of missions yield many unexpected rewards.
For industries, it's like getting virtually free R&D.

I know you are, but I don't most people are.
You hear them say space exploration is a waste of money.
