NASA SPINOFFS: Bringing Space Down to Earth
For more than 40 years, the NASA Innovative Partnerships Program has facilitated the transfer of NASA technology to the private sector, benefiting global competition and the economy. The resulting commercialization has contributed to the development of commercial products and services in the fields of health and medicine, industry, consumer goods, transportation, public safety, computer technology, and environmental resources. This lecture will highlight some of the benefits of the technology transfer program that we experience in our everyday lives and offer insight into NASA’s commitment to benefiting humanity through the space program. A STRONG SPACE PROGRAM EQUALS A STRONG AMERICA!
