    I Have Been Asked Many Times 'What Good Does The Work That NASA Does Do Us?'

    I think I may have found an answer:

    Link 1: Nasa Tech Briefs :: Nasa Tech Briefs

    See also:

    Link 2: Spin Off 1976
    Link 3: Spin Off 1977

    ...

    Link 36: Spin Off 2010

    I will post the other links another time. Right now I have to go to bed.

    Access forbidden for those links it seems.

    However, its a ridiculous question as the list of technologies that NASA research has given us is huge. Their research has moved battery technologies along by decades, making electric cars commercially viable in cities. They've created technologies for monitoring air quality, that are now used world-wide in cities to ensure people aren't being poisoned, solar panels are another of theirs, heat and fire resistant materials, earthquake prediction systems, the list is huge. NASA spinoffs, space benefits, space history, NASA space spinoffs, NASA technology products

    I'd rather we were spending money on exploring space than developing weapons.

    Agreed. However I have been asked this question many times. I am more than a little fed up with having the answers I give tossed aside as irrelevant.

    I will now point anyone who asks in the direction the webpage you have indicated above. As to the links not working that is more than a little frustrating as I was looking at several of the PFDs last night.

    I'm pretty sure that all of the above were not from NASA ...

    They are on special license from a nice group of aliens and I can't wait to find out what they allow us to have next
