Wheaton Steps Up for NASA Spinoffs
Wil Wheaton, the actor who played Wesley Crusher on “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” is host of a new public service announcement about how much of the technology we rely on daily was developed by NASA for space exploration and then adapted or enhanced for use here on Earth.
Similar PSAs are hosted by William Shatner and June Lockhart, both of whom also portrayed space explorers on TV and the silver screen. Wheaton, who also has a large social media following, explains how many of these technologies have found their way into our schools, homes, cars, computers and American industry.

I am completely in favor of the space program.
But it gets a little frustrating when arguing the benifits of it and all you can think of is …VELCRO.
Osteoporosis is another good one
Shut up Wesley!
thinking about it, truly nasa's contributions are immense. Even if U.S goes broke soon with the high debt, and countless wars, hope nasa keeps its door open.
