Space Exploration
Humanity needs to continue its space exploration to assure the safety and continuation of itself. Governments are not making a big enough effort into the space expedition scene. If we do not get off this planet, global warming could lead to the extinction of the human species. The future technologies that could result from more space missions could be astronomical level. For an example, the Apollo missions led to innovating athletic shoe material, by getting rid of the foam midsole that typically wore out quick. In an article published by NASA, recognizing the technological advancements made from the Apollo missions, like the:
Houston’s Reliant Stadium features the first retractable roof of its kind, made possible by NASA technology. NASA’s spacesuit fabric has fostered many new innovations, including a permanent structure fabric developed for the Apollo Program and produced by New York-based Birdair, Inc. Pound for pound, the material is stronger than steel and weighs less than five ounces per square foot. Its translucency value, which ranges from four to 18 percent, reduces lighting needs and helps maintain the natural grass playing field. Its reflectivity lowers cooling costs, and the Teflon coating reduces maintenance costs by increasing the fabric resistance to moisture, temperature extremes, and deterioration. These factors combine to lower initial costs and speed construction. (1978)
Apollo missions led to the creation of solar panels for the
