You Probably Use Most Of These Things Every Day, and They Wouldn’t Exist Without NASA

LEDs

We always think of LEDs as these lights that allow us to see better at night. But NASA had a different idea for the use of these lights. In space, LEDs were used to grow plants in space.

Not only was the WARP 10 designed to provide immediate first aid and care for minor injuries, it was also designed to increase the endurance of soldiers in combat situations.
