“That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”
This famous quote of Nile Armstrong indicates the achievements in the science and technology world that 50 years ago, on July 1969, the first time human obtained in the form of landing on Moon’s surface. The arrival of the man on the moon was a milestone which also left lasting effects on our daily life. According to today, Apollo program worth $ 200 billion has opened the path of development in many fields, which we did not know anything about. Here are some of them.
Eight things of the Apollo mission that changed our lives
1. Cleanliness became easier:
Without wire devices exist before the Apollo Mission, but through this program, the form of devices that we see today are much better. For example, the appliance maker Black and Decker made his first such drill machine in 1961 with no wire. The same company made a special drill machine for NASA, American space agency to collect soil samples in space.
Black and Decker introduced many new home appliances using the expertise and knowledge obtained from this drill machine, in which the world’s first manual vacuum cleaner, DustBuster, came in 1979. More than 150 million units of DustBuster were sold in 30 years.
Improved time use:
The most accurate time was necessary to land on the moon because the difference between less than a second could have become a problem of life and death in space.
Therefore, it was not surprising that NASA wanted the watches to show extraordinary timing for this mission.
As a result, such modern quartz watches were made, which caused a difference less than a minute in one year.
But interestingly, for the better use of time, the reputation came to conventional mechanical wristwatches that were worn on Nail Armstrong and his fellow Buzz Altron on Apollo mission.
3. Supply of Clean Water:
Water purification technology on Apollo Missions is used today in many ways to reduce the bacteria, viruses, and kitchens in the water reservoir. For this purpose, Apollo mission used the use of silver ion water purification without chlorine. Now this method is being used to clean swimming pools and water wells around the world.
Space wear and lasting shoes:
Astronauts are still using suites on the design of the Apollo mission space of 1965, whose main purpose was the protection of astronomers during the walk on the moon.
But this technology also made major progress for the modern industry of shoemaking.
As a result, in the past few decades, many types of elastic and shocking athletic shoes are marketed.
In 1967, three astrologers were killed by a fire during a training mission in Apollo, after which the whole program was under crisis.
But as a result, NASA developed fireproof clothes that are now used too much on the ground.
Similarly, during the Apollo mission, a cooling system for astronomers is now being used in many patients, including those who suffer from multiple sclerosis (MS), even keeping horses calm.
New technology for heart treatment:
PaceMaker is an instrument that is applied to heart patients whose heartbeat is dangerous at risk.
This device was also based on NASA’s ninetric technology. The first Peacemaker was used in 1980.
New types of foods:
To reach the Moon, NASA had to keep the spacecraft light and used at least one place. As per this requirement of savings, food was also investigated during the Apollo mission.
The solution was to get freshly cooked food at a very low temperature and then was dried. It was only to eat by add hot water. This diet also proved to be true for Nile Armstrong and not only easy but very affordable for hiking and camping camps.
Special rescue blanket:
The space blanket was used to save the Apollo Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) from the heat of the sun, which was used by the bright blanket.
That was the beginning of the living room blankets that show us common today.
These special blankets, plastic, film, and aluminum-based which save human life based on NASA’s technology, are commonly used in any emergency and work to protect heat.
The same blanket is also used in marathon encounters and hospitals.
